Wagner/de Vlieger The Ring: An Orchestral Adventure

Paul Rissmann Presenter
Wagner’s epic Ringcycle is the kind of experience that changes lives. A tale of gods, lovers, tragedy and redemption that begins at the bottom of a river and ends with the destruction of a world, it’s quite simply overwhelming. But if you don’t happen to have four days to spare, here’s your chance to see what the fuss is about: an hour-long orchestral highlights package! Paul
Rissmann tells the story: Richard Wagner and the RSNO do the rest.

Thsi was a very impressive performance, a real delight to have such a large orchestra performing a shortened version of the Ring.Paul Rissman explanations really clarified the scores and Phillepe clearly has a deep connection to Wagner's Ring. I was amazed that this was not a sell out, so if you have a change to go to the concert, do not miss it.
