Fantasy kingdoms, scandalous love affairs, dwarfs, giants, and powerful music. Game of Thrones? Tolkien? Actually, both are predated by the Ring Cycle, Wagner’s master achievement in his quest to create an all-encompassing theatrical experience.
Gods, mortals, and mythical creatures scheme to gain the magic ring that endows its possessor power over the world. Through the late Maestro Lorin Maazel’s compilation Ring Without Words, premiered by the New York Philharmonic, Wagner’s four operatic installments of Der Ring des Nibelungen are presented together in concert.
