Notes & Reviews:
This production of 'Das Rheingold' is based on the new complete edition of the works of Richard Wagner. Performed at the Het Muziektheater Amsterdam it blends the lyrical, mythical and philosophical qualities of Wagner's work into a profound unity. Pierre Audi's stage direction is inspired and amazing sets by George Tsypin and wonderful costumes by Oscar-winning Eiko Ishioka complement singing and playing of great intensity from the cast under the energetic baton of Harmut Haenchen, creating a vigorous, almost intimate performance that will leave and indelible impression.
Das Rheingold is the opening of this extraordinary production of The Ring from Het Muziektheater Amsterdam, with the orchestra taking its place both in the pit and, ring-shaped, on the astonishing stage.
