Raising the curtain on a work of superlatives: the Staatsoper Unter den Linden represents the ultimate challenge for any opera house, Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen. Christian Thielemann conducts the Ring tetralogy, and Dmitri Tcherniakov, highly praised for his psychologically sophisticated productions, led the playful all-star ensemble coherently through the panorama of characters, situations and events that unfolded like a universe and consistently interpreted the sheer vastness and the manifold twists and turns of the Ring cosmos. With the Walküre score, composed in the mid-1850s, Wagner reached new heights with his music, giving the orchestra remarkable communicative powers, layers of meaning were thus developed and incorporated into the work.

“Enchanting magic of sound” (Die Zeit)

“Spectacular and breath-takingly precise, that’s how Thielemann illuminates the Wagner score.” (Neue Zürcher Zeitung)

“Velvety sound of unmatched beauty” (The Guardian)
