)-- The Gran Teatre Liceu production of The Complete Cycle of Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen
Available on DVD June 30
Kultur is pleased to announce its release of Der Ring des Nibelungen, performed at Barcelona’s Gran Teatre del Liceu. This visually spectacular and highly entertaining 4-program cycle under the musical direction of Bertrand de Billy will be available on June 30, 2009 for a suggested retail price of $149.99.
Analogous to our times, Producer Harry Kupfer sees the cycle as a parable of humanity’s destructive greed and nature ravaged by human technology as realized by his use of semi- abstract sets and direction. Betreand de Billy directs Wagner’s epic work through the use of these sets and the advanced stage machinery of Barcelona’s Gran Teatre del Liceu.
The programs in the Wagner Ring Cycle include, Das Rheingold, Die Walkure, Siegfried and Gotterdammerung, starring Matti Salminen, John Treleaven, Falk Struckmann, Linda Watson, Wolfgang Rauch and an exceptional supporting cast.
Der Ring des Nibelungen eleven-disc set will be available on June 30, 2009 for a suggested retail price of $149.99
