                                         Das Rheingold, last heard in Auckland over a decade
                                         ago, is the first opera in Wagner’s celebrated Der Ring
                                         des Nibelungen, one of the world’s greatest musical
                                         epics: a mythological tale of love, power and retribution.
                                         With music and voices to match the drama of the action,
                                         Das Rheingold marked a milestone in Wagner’s work –
                                         and a break with earlier operatic conventions. “Believe
                                         me, no one has ever composed like this; I fancy my
                                         music is fearful; it is a pit of terror and grandeurs,”
                                         he declared.
                                         Discover its power and beauty for yourself. This massive
                                         work, with huge orchestral forces and a stand-out cast,
                                         headed by New Zealand’s own Paul Whelan singing
                                         the role of Wotan, promises rich musical rewards and
                                         an exciting evening of glorious Wagnerian tale-telling.
