Pittsburgh Festival Opera's Production of Das Rheingold, the first in Wagner's Ring Cycle.
Witness the doom of a universe and the dawn of a new era, and share in a pilgrimage that millions have taken, as Pittsburgh Festival Opera transports you to Valhalla for its acclaimed Pittsburgh Ring Cycle.
Before Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones, there was The Ring, an epic legend of Norse mythology set to music—one of the crowning achievements of Western civilization.
Our Ring is based on the internationally acclaimed version by composer Jonathan Dove which slightly condenses the orchestration and length of the works (none last longer than three hours) while retaining the authenticity of the original. It presents the entire scope of Wagner’s great dramas, making it the perfect version for newcomers as well as Wagner lovers.
Join us for a Wagner weekend from July 13-15 for lectures relating to Rhinegold, a Wagner scenes program, and parties to meet the artists.
Join the cast at the Opening Night Party with light fare immediately following the performance on Friday 13 July.
Hanna Brammer will be singing the role of Woglinde
