Notes & Reviews:

Christian Thielemann's reading of Wagner's complete Ring Cycle at the Wiener Staatsoper in 2011 was universally hailed as one of the greatest Wagnerian events of the last half-century and is now being released as a beautiful box set containing 14 CDs of the four Ring operas and 2 DVDs featuring four introductory films to each opera.

With the chorus and Orchestra of the Vienna State Opera and an outstanding cast of today's leading dramatic singers, these performances set the standard for Wagner interpretation in the 21st Century.

The recordings were made live by ORF, capturing all the excitement of the opera house performances.

The 4 documentary films were directed by acclaimed producer Eric Schulz, complementing the audio recordings, providing an introduction, commentary and analysis by experts, including conductor Christian Thielemann. They will also be broadcast by the German/Austrian TV channel 3Sat in April - one feature per week starting on 4th April.

Booklet contains synopses in German, English and French and libretti in German and English.
