The Wagner Edition - Flying Dutchman, Der Ring des Nibelungen, Meistersinger von Nurnberg, Lohengrin, Parsifal, Tannhauser, Tristan und Isolde [25 DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

Presented here are all of Wagner's mature operas from seven leading European opera houses recorded during the last decade. Featuring many acclaimed Wagner singers of our age, these productions exult in the force of Ezra Pound's dictum, 'Great art is news that stays news'. The directors Harry Kupfer, Nikolaus Lehnhoff, David McVicar and others heed Wagner's own persuasive plea, 'Children, make it new', in stagings employing modern technology within grand designs that face up to the breadth of Wagner's dramatic genius and the social and political implications.
