Why See Lyric Opera of Chicago: Das Rheingold?

Classical & Opera


The Lyric Opera of Chicago mount their epic of Wagner's monumental Ring Cycle this season, beginning with The Rhinegold, starring Christine Goerke, Burkhard Fritz, Eric Owens and Samuel Yorn. Loosely based on the Norse saga 'The Song of the Nibelungs', the ambitious epic follows the journey of a powerful ring, and the fortunes of those who seek to wield it.


Embittered by his failed attempt to seduce the three Rhine Maidens, the sly dwarf Alberich steals the precious river gold, forging a ring of power and enslaving his fellow dwarves in the Underworld.

Meanwhile, Woton, King of the Gods is embroiled in a complicated battle with the giants Fasolt and Fafner who demand a rich payoff for building Valhalla, the magnificent new home of the immortals. When Woton hears of Alberich's ring of power, he seeks to steal it and pay his debt. But at a heavy price, for the ring is fatally cursed and ruins the lives of all those who come into contact with it...

Prepare yourself for the dense world of warring Gods, monsters and mythology in this rich tapestry of a production, scored by one of opera's most famous and bombastic composers.
