Melbourne Opera continues its Wagner cycle with a new production of the first of his Das Ring des Nibelungen operas, Das Rheingold, at the Regent Theatre.
Eminent international Wagnerian Maestro Anthony Negus returns to conduct, after his great successes of Tristan and Isolde (for which he won the 2018 Green Room Conducting Award) and The Flying Dutchman, leading a superb international cast - Darren Jeffrey, Hrólfur Sæmundsson, James Egglestone, Lee Abrahmsen and Roxane Hislop.
MO's recent productions of Norma, The Flying Dutchman, Rossini's Otello, Tristan and Isolde, Lohengrin, Tannhäuser and Rienzi have all received critical and popular acclaim. This new production is directed by Suzanne Chaundy and designed by Helpmann Award winning designer Dale Ferguson.
Sung in German with English surtitles.
