Gran Teatre del Liceu


Robert Carsen's production is the follow-up to the first 'day' of his Ring Cycle. In it he presents an environmentally pessimistic vision with close affinities to Schopenhauer's philosophy, itself the key to the evolution of Richard Wagner's Weltanschauung.
Music drama in three acts. The first 'day' of the tetralogy Der Ring des Nibelungen (The Ring of the Nibelung). Libretto and music by Richard Wagner. Premiered on 26 June 1870 at the Royal Theatre in Munich. First performed at the Gran Teatre del Liceu on 25 January 1899. Most recent performance at the Gran Teatre del Liceu: 7 July 2003.
