Das Rheingold - Wagner

A rare chance to experience Wagner’s opera Das Rheingold in a unique 150th anniversary production by Tarnhelm Opera, semi-staged and sung in German with English subtitles. The Worcester performance of Das Rheingold will take place in the nave of Worcester Cathedral. The cathedral organ and an array of percussion instruments will support the music while the magnificent architecture will add to the drama.

First performed in Munich 150 years ago, in the autumn of 1869, Das Rheingold is the first of the four operas which make up Wagner’s celebrated Ring Cycle. While it is the shortest of his operas – approximately two-and-a-half hours in length – it still has the hallmarks of Wagner’s monumental handiwork. The storyline, rooted in a world of ancient myth, is compelling and moving. Curious newcomers to Wagner can thus expect to enjoy the production alongside existing devotees.
