Der Ring des Nibelungen

Live and as Video on Demand

Experiencing the Ring des Nibelungen as a cyclical performance is an extraordinary event for both a theatre and its audience. We recently did this twice, with a good 2000 people joining us.

The interest in our interpretation of Richard Wagner's grand Weltdeutungsmythos was many times greater. We are a small house and the tickets were sold out in no time. For this reason, we are particularly pleased to be able to offer the second cycle with a first-class cast as streaming to those at home. On 18, 20, 24 and 26 May, the performances were broadcast live from the opera house to this website and are now available free of charge as video-on-demand until June 15, 2024.
