The Ring of the Nibelung:
The Ring of the Nibelung

Since the founding of the Deutsche Oper Berlin over a century ago, the opera house has been inseparably linked to THE RING OF THE NIBELUNG. New productions of the work were always responses to the question as to the relevance of Wagner’s cycle to the youth of a given decade. 35 years after Götz Friedrich’s legendary version it is now time for a new edition of the RING. The following pages provide a glimpse of what is spurring on the people involved in our new production of the RING. We also present the key facts relating to the run, to enable you to start planning your RING evening.

THE RING OF THE NIBELUNG

Dates
Alexander Meier-Dörzenbach and Jörg Königsdorf
The Rhinegold: An introduction
The whole ring is about the powerlessness of love and the lovelessness of power. Wotan wants to rule with laws to achieve power and love. What he does to his children, however, is marked by suffering and brutality. Dramaturgs Alexander Meier-Dörzenbach and Jörg Königsdorf give an overview of the central themes and motifs in THE RING OF THE NIBELUNG and especially in THE RHINEGOLD.

Moving in good circles
Great ideas need great supporters. And great stories contain eternity at their core – the end of the final chapter heralds a brand-new saga. So it was only natural that the first meeting of the friends and supporters of the new RING production should take place in the wings of the last performance of Götz Friedrich’s version of the RING. The new production of the RING would not have been possible without the Society of Friends and Patrons and one very special circle of supporters.
