Gods and goddesses, giants and dwarves…let the adventure begin!
From the primordial depths of the River Rhine to the glittering turrets of Valhalla—the world of the gods is in chaos. The evil Alberich steals the magic gold from errant water sprites and forges it into a ring that gives the wearer unfathomable power. Now, everyone wants it—but anyone who gets it is cursed. Betrayal, cheating, illicit love, and murder…it’s all here in Wagner’s iconic masterpiece.
Leading this all-star cast in a role debut as the chief god: Nicholas Brownlee, who wows with his commanding presence, huge voice, and “handsome mahogany tone” (The New Yorker). As his imperious wife and sometimes partner-in-crime, you’ll love Amanda Echalaz, “whose huge reputation lives up to the hype.”—_Daily Telegraph, London_
