Description

Ring Sketch Poster

This 24" x 18" poster is from Richard Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen, one of the most ambitious and influential works of art ever created. The Met's classic production, by Austrian director Otto Schenk, premiered over the course of three seasons between 1986 and 1988.

The image is from the original set designs created by Gunther Schneider-Siemssen for Die Walküre, Act II: A wild, rocky pass.

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.
