Das Rheingold

  • Der Ring des Nibelungen: Das Rheingold (Marek Janowski, Frank Castorf)

    Premiered in Dresden in 1843, Wagner’s three-act opera tells the story of a mysterious Dutchman cursed to sail the oceans for eternity as punishment for having defied God. Allowed ashore once every seven years to find a wife who will love him faithfully, he docks in a Norwegian fjord and meets Daland, a sailor whose daughter Senta has always been strangely drawn to the legend of the Flying Dutchman. A tale of love, jealousy, sacrifice and redemption then unfolds, amid music rich in passion, drama and atmospheric colour.
