Notes & Reviews:

This is a BLU-RAY disc and it will not play on a standard DVD player. A standard DVD is available as AHM 101353. Outside Germany, the name Weimar tends to evoke mixed feelings and pictures of German history of the last hundred years. Within Germany, Weimar means a town in the state of Thuringia arguably saturated with the "Deutsche Kultur" of the "Weimarer Klassik", the legendary Bauhaus, and finally the life and work of Franz Liszt and his son in law Richard Wagner. In Weimar, Richard Wagner began composing the first part of his Ring-cycle, 'Das Rheingold'. In 2008 the Nationaltheater Weimar started a new production of this unique tetralogy. With Michael Schulz' fine and highly intelligent staging this new 'Ring' production on DVD and Blu-Ray becomes an outstanding document of contemporary opera theatre.
