Der Ring des Nibelungen
Cycle 3 - 28, 29, 31 May / 2 June 2024
Bühnenfestspiel for three days and one eve
In German with German and English surtitles.
A group of people meet a concert grand piano on an empty stage, a note is struck, and slowly a world of fantasy, longing and intoxication unfolds, captivating everyone and fusing them into a community. This is how DAS RHEINGOLD begins, directed by Stefan Herheim, which has been continuing the over one hundred-year tradition of performances of Wagner's tetralogy at the Deutsche Oper Berlin since 2021. True to Wagner's core idea of creating a modern equivalent to the community-building power of Greek theatre, for the German-Norwegian director gold is a symbol of the play itself and its magical effect on people. On the four evenings, Herheim creates an arc that leads through stations of the performance history finally to the foyer of the Deutsche Oper Berlin with its emblematic cloud sculpture. This RING is a play that often works with seemingly the simplest theatrical means, such as a white, amazingly versatile cloth, and thus challenges the audience's power of imagination, but precisely by doing so allows it to become an indispensable part of the performance.
The three cycles are sold exclusively as a four-performance package. It is not possible to swap between the individual cycles.
