Description

Premiered in 1976, exactly one hundred years after the first performance of the Ring as a cycle, this production has set new aesthetic standards in the interpretation of Wagner's gargantuan masterpiece With young stage director Patrice Chéreau and musical modernist Pierre Boulez, Wolfgang Wagner had put together a dream team to find a new, modern yet timeless approach to his grandfather's work, regarding both music and staging Filmed at great expense under the direction of Brian Large, this production has been a best-selling DVD title on Philips. Since its disappearance from the marketplace it has commanded high black market prices and there is a serious demand among dealers for a re-release "The central part of the Ring tetralogy is precisely this: a hero has been created who would actually have had all the attributes of freedom, but nobody remembered to tell him…so Siegfried remains unaware and incomplete… Mime has to be both funny and tragic - a clown like Chaplin and pathetic like a downtrodden people" (Patrice Chéreau) "One can only marvel at how enthrallingly Chéreau has made visible every ramification of this malignant idyll and bitter comedy. In its faithful service to this fabulously polished staging, Brian Large's video direction is a model" (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)
