Richard Wagner: Das Rheingold



The latest in their highly regarded Wagner opera series, Hallé present the live recording of their acclaimed Bridgewater Hall performance.

Das Rheingold stands as the Vorabend or "Preliminary Evening" of Wagner’s epic Der Ring des Nibelungen, designed to be free of the traditional operatic concepts of aria and operatic chorus, and presented as the more epic Bühnenfestspiel or “stage festival play”, with the linking of dramatic elements through the use of musical motifs.

Recorded at the Bridgewater Hall, capturing all the drama of the acclaimed live performance.
