The Ring of the Nibelung:
The Ring of the Nibelung

With its world-exploring ambition as well as its sheer temporal expanse, THE RING OF THE NIBELUNG is the greatest challenge for any production team. Sir Donald Runnicles and Stefan Herheim have now taken on this mission of translating the world of thought of Wagner's tetralogy into the 21st century. True to Schiller's dictum that man is only fully human where he plays, Herheim develops the beginning of the tetralogy from the act of playing. Through the playful execution of the myth, society finds itself and its values, which are, of course, only valid as long as the play lasts and must therefore be found anew again and again. Consequently, the conception of Wagner's myth in GÖTTERDÄMMERUNG ends in the here and now, the focus widens from the development of individual figures to society as a whole.

Moving in good circles
Great ideas need great supporters. And great stories contain eternity at their core – the end of the final chapter heralds a brand-new saga. So it was only natural that the first meeting of the friends and supporters of the new RING production should take place in the wings of the last performance of Götz Friedrich’s version of the RING. The new production of the RING would not have been possible without the Society of Friends and Patrons and one very special circle of supporters.
