In Das Rheingold is the story of two unparalleled artists who join forces to create a groundbreaking new Ring for the Met: Maestro James Levine and director Robert Lepage. The cycle launches with Das Rheingold, the prologue to Wagnerâ€™s epic drama. â€śThe Ring is not just a story or a series of operas, itâ€™s a cosmos,â€ť says Lepage, who brings cutting-edge technology and his own visionary imagination to the worldâ€™s greatest theatrical journey. Bryn Terfel sings the leading role of Wotan for the first time with the company, heading an extraordinary cast.
James Levine; Wendy Bryn Harmer, Stephanie Blythe, Patricia Bardon, Richard Croft, Gerhard Siegel, Bryn Terfel, Eric Owens, Franz-Josef Selig, Hans-Peter KĂ¶nig
