History

Richard Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen

Conceived and written over a period of more than 25 years, Wagner’s Ring cycle is an epic musical journey of four operas: Das Rheingold, Die Walküre, Siegfried, and Götterdämmerung. Its story of gods, dwarves, and men and the quest for an all-powerful ring was inspired by many sources, including 13th-century Icelandic writings and the medieval German Nibelungenlied. The complete cycle was first seen at the inaugural Bayreuth Festival in 1876. The Met’s landmark production, directed by Robert Lepage, premiered over the course of the 2010–11 and 2011–12 seasons. The DVD release of its Live in HD presentation won the 2013 Grammy Award for Best Opera Recording.

Riding with the Valkyrie

This is the most breathtaking piece of art. It shows the Valkyrie in their most graceful and determined mode. The beauty of their faces and the speed of their horses comes through in this depiction. You are there with them as they bring the heroes to Valhalla and you can hear their music as you are swept away into the most wonderful world of the Ring! There is so much to take in and it has already given me so much pleasure.
