WAGNER, R.: Rheingold (Das) (Liceu, 2004) (NTSC)


Wagner (1810 - 1849)

DAS RHEINGOLD
Falk Struckmann, Graham Clark, Günter von Kannen, Lioba Braun, Kwanchul Youn. Orquestra Simfònica del Gran Teatre del Liceu, Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin / Bertrand de Billy

The prologue to Wagner's giant masterpiece Der Ring des Nibelungen unfolds the beginning of an epic journey when Alberich seizes the ring of gold, its awesome power unleashing an unstoppable story of deceit, destruction, death and transfiguring love.

Filmed at Barcelona's Gran Teatre del Liceu in 2004, Harry Kupfer's stunning production first staged in Berlin, and recorded in sumptuous surround sound, numbers among the greatest productions of modern times.

REVIEWS
‘Any production of this epic work is an an event, and there aren’t many of them. This is an excellent version, visually a mixture of realistic and abstract, but mythic and timeless and very moving. Deborah Polaski was a fine Brunnhilde, and she continues in this role. Wotan, with a pony-tail and dark glasses, was nobly performed by Falk Struckmann. In Wotan’s “farewell” the affection between father and daughter was most expressively sung and acted.’ Barcelona Business (Performance Review)
