For perhaps the most ambitious project in its famed history, the Metropolitan Opera commissioned visionary director Robert Lepage to stage a new production of opera's most formidable masterpiece: Richard Wagner's four-part Ring Cycle.
The cycle launches with DAS REINGOLD, the prologue to Wagner’s epic drama. “The Ring is not just a story or a series of operas, it’s a cosmos,” says Lepage, who brings cutting-edge technology and his own visionary imagination to the world’s greatest theatrical journey. Bryn Terfel sings the leading role of Wotan for the first time with the company, heading an extraordinary cast. 2hrs. 46mins.
To be followed by the remaining operas in the Cycle:
DIE WALKURE - Saturday, May 12, 10am
SIEGFRIED - Wednesday, May 16, 1pm
GOTTERDAMMERUNG - Saturday, May 19, 10am
