Wagner: Ring des Nibelungen / Frieder Aurich, Kirsten Blanck, Erin Caves, Catherine Foster, Christine Hansmann, Mario Hoff. Staatskapelle Weimar, Carl St. Clair (live, 2008) [4 Blu-ray]

Notes & Reviews:

In 2008 the Nationaltheater Weimar started a new production of Richard Wagner's unique tetralogy Der Ring des Nibelungen. The conductor is Carl St.Clair, a former student of Leonard Bernstein. With Michael Schulz' fine and highly intelligent staging this new "Ring" production becomes an outstanding document of contemporary opera theatre. 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".
