The Metropolitan Opera

Richard Wagner
Das Rheingold

  • ESTIMATED RUN TIME: 2 HRS 30 MINS
  • SUNG IN GERMAN
  • photo credit: Karen Almond / Met Opera

Wagner’s visionary initial installment of the Ring Cycle depicts the original sin of the theft of the sacred golden treasure, the vanity of the gods, the greed of the Nibelungen, the fratricide of the giants, and the building of Valhalla. Bass-baritone Greer Grimsley sings the role of Wotan, the conflicted lord of the gods. Mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton sings her first Wagner role at the Met as Wotan’s embattled wife, Fricka.
