Das Rheingold is the first opera in Wagner’s epic cycle Der Ring des Nibelungen, or The Ring cycle.

Inspired by Norse mythology Das Rheingold tells the story of the Nibelung dwarf Alberich, who steals a magic ring of gold from the Rhinemaidens, or water nymphs. Whoever possesses the ring will have the power to rule the world, as long as they denounce love. A condition that is not a problem for the greedy Alberich. Wotan, the king of the Gods, hears about the all-powerful ring and promises it to the giants Fafner and Fasolt as payment for building his castle in Valhalla. Just one problem, Wotan doesn’t have the ring…

This production from Teatro Real is led by Principal Guest Conductor Pablo Heras-Casad, who leads a cast of renowned Wagnerians including Greer Grimsley, Sarah Connolly, and Samuel Youn in Robert Carsen’s bleak vision of the story. Carsen sets Wagner’s Norse-inspired tale in a desolate and polluted world, earning it the nickname ‘’The Green Cycle’’.
