Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the second work of Wagner’s epic cycle, Der Ring des Nibelungen, Wotan faces the consequences of his actions, begun in Das Rheingold, while his daughter Brünnhilde emerges as the heroic voice of the conscience he strives to silence. Struggles of power mix with adulterous and incestuous love in an episode of dramatic vengeance.

Filmed at Barcelona’s Gran Teatre del Liceu in 2003, Harry Kupfer’s acclaimed production, first staged in Berlin, numbers among the greatest productions of modern times and is recorded in sumptuous surround sound.

Sung in German, with English, French, German, Spanish, Catalan and Italian subtitles.
