"This Siegfried definitely had me hooked from beginning to end"
(MusicWeb July 2006)

In the third part of the epic cycle, Der Ring des Nibelungen, Siegfried pursues his path to manhood. As parental love dissipates and is replaced by romantic love and desire, Wagner reflects on the experience of human life and the fact of mortality. This remarkable production of The Ring, from Het Muziektheater Amsterdam, in which Pierre Audi places the orchestra on the symbolically ring-shaped stage, blends the lyrical, mythical and philosophical qualities of Wagner's work into a profound unity. Astonishing sets by George Tsypin and fabulous costumes by Oscar-winning Eiko Ishioka, combined with passionate singing from the soloists and dramatic playing from the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra under the rigorous control of Hartmut Haenchen, create an intense and highly memorable experience. This production of The Ring of the Nibelung is based on the new Complete Edition of the works of Richard Wagner.

'Pierre Audi's Ring really shines!'Wagner Society, The Netherlands

'It is breathtaking to experience how well the technical and spatial possibilities of Het Muziektheater are being used; and even more overwhelming to see the focus on the individual in all this excitement. Het Muziektheater had a premiere
without any equal...'Het Financieele Dagblad, The Netherlands

'Hartmut Haenchen builds on the New Wagner Edition and the Residentie Orchestra in outstanding form: a leaner, more
elegant and never thundering Wagner sound makes this production a rich experience.'Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Germany
