Opera Around the World: Das Rheingold

Rob Tedesco, former member of The BLO Bunch and doctoral candidate at the University of Auckland shared his thoughts on a recent production of Wagner's
Das Rheingold.

Wagner: Das Rheingold
Auckland Town Hall

On Friday, July 29, 2011, I went to a concert performance of Richard Wagner’s Das Rheingold, the prelude opera to Der Ring des Nibelungen.Wagner considered this opera to be a prelude and the remaining three operas the trilogy itself. This was not the first Wagner opera I have ever seen. It was, however, the first opera of the Ring cycle that I had seen live. I now want to see them all!
