The latest in their highly regarded Wagner opera series, Halle presents the live recording of their acclaimed Bridgewater Hall performance.

Das Rheingold stands as the Varabent or Preliminary Evening of Wagners epic Der Ring des Nibelungen, designed to be free of the traditional operatic concepts of aria and operatic chorus, and presented as the more epic Buhenfestspiel or stage festival play, with the linking of dramatic elements through the use of musical motifs.

The album was recorded at the Bridgewater Hall, capturing all the drama of the acclaimed live performance. The release was produced by Halles award-winning engineer Steve Portnoi. The Halle were the stars, responsive to every nuance of Elders direction. (The Times on Halles performance of Das Rheingold) Elders interpretation combined lyricism with drama in a way that only the greatest Wagner conductors can realize.
