About the performance

The semi-staged performance of DAS RHEINGOLD on the parking deck is also the starting point for a project by musicians in the Deutsche Oper Berlin orchestra: an approximately 50-minute concert film on the topic of Men, Myths and Fairy Tales, which makes a programme of "Tischlerei concerts", originally intended to be performed live, accessible to a wider audience.

The team's goal was to capture the mood of the works through the tools of film, thereby creating a concentration that most closely resembles a live concert experience. For example, the works of Robert Schumann ("Auf dem Rheine", "Belsazar"), Karol Szymanowsky ("Mythen") and Georg Philipp Telemann ("Zwölf heroische Märsche") touch on various themes and motifs, all of which are of central importance to Wagner's DER RING DES NIBELUNGEN. The film also strives to find a special atmosphere for each work. Yet the programme's conclusion is a direct homage to Wagner: a "Rheingold phantasmagoria" arranged by Douglas Brown for chamber ensemble and narrator, in which Wagner's letters are interwoven with passages from RHEINGOLD.
