Notes & Reviews:

In the third part of the epic cycle, 'Der Ring des Nibelungen,' Siegfried pursues his path to manhood. As parental love dissipates and is replaced by romantic love and desire, Wagner reflects on the experience of human life and the fact of mortality. This extraordinary production of The Ring from Het Muziektheater Amsterdam, in which Pierre Audi places the orchestras both in the pit and on the remarkable stage, blends the lyrical, mythical and philosophical qualitites of Wagner's work into a profound unity. With this release, Opus Arte completes a recording of the "Ring" cycle, from Barcelona, that is one of the best available in home video. It is staged by Harry Kupfer, one of the world's best opera directors. Conductor Bertrand de Billy paces and accents the cycle tastefully. But the primary asset of this production is the casting, mostly with young performers who find acting as important as singing. -Washington Post
