With its claim of explaining the world through its sheer expanse across time, Der Ring des Nibelungen is the greatest challenge for any opera director. At the Deutsche Oper Berlin, Stefan Herheim is taking on the task of translating the mindset of Wagner’s tetralogy into the 21st century. Conducted by Sir Donald Runnicles, the new cycle will be titled in German and English and features an exciting cast, with Nina Stemme as Brünnhilde, Clay Hilley as Siegfried, Brandon Jovanovich as Siegmund and Elisabeth Teige as Sieglinde.

One of the best places to hear classical music in the summer.
