The Ring on the Rhine
Let Rhinemaidens emerge from the depths with Richard Wagner’s Ring cycle in Düsseldorf, along the Lower Rhine river – the very setting of Wagner’s epic Gesamtkunstwerk.
In June 2019, attend Deutsche Oper am Rhein’s new production of Der Ring des Nibelungen for its premiere season of the complete cycle. Directed by Dietrich W. Hilsdorf and conducted by Wagner expert Axel Kober, with an opera company renowned for its strong Wagnerian tradition and interpretation, this new “Ring on the Rhine” presents a tale of early 20th century bourgeoisie and industrialism against Wagner’s enduring score.
Between performances, travel along the Rhine between the musically-rich cities of Bonn, Cologne, Wuppertal, Düsseldorf and Duisburg: the birthplaces and homes of Beethoven, Offenbach, Bruch, the Schumanns, and Wagner conductor Hans Knappertsbusch.
