The famed composer Richard Wagner was known best for his epic Ring Cycle, a series of grand operas that followed the tragedies
and battles surrounding a mythical ring that grants its wearer immeasurable power. Das Rheingold is the first chapter of
the cycle, introducing the ring and the gods that seek to control it.
Fans of J.R.R. Tolkeins Lord of the Rings stories will find much to enjoy in this classic fantasia. Alberich the dwarf
discovers and covets a special ring that gives its wear immeasurable power if they agree to renounce love. The villain does
so, but doesnt count on the great god Wotan also desiring the ringand being willing to brave the underworld to get it.
This amazing opera will entrance any fan of fantasy. With powerful gods that harbor epic motives, it kicks off one of
historys best-known operas in a grand way. River folk, dwarves, fire gods and angry giants can all be found in Das Rheingold.
But dont expect opera tickets to be in plentiful supply. Das
Rheingold tickets are sure to sell out fast.
