Opera Australia has announced that Richard Wagner’s incomparable Der Ring des Nibelungen will be performed in Brisbane in three cycles between 10 November and 5 December 2020. Musical direction will be in the hands of French conductor Philippe Auguin (who conducted the Ring for Washington National Opera in 2016 and Tannhäuser for Opera Australia in 1998) and directed by China’s Chen Shi-Zheng. According to today’s media, it will use giant LED video screens instead of conventional sets, so visually, all things will be possible. German tenor Stefan Vinke as Siegfried will lead an international cast, and the Queensland Symphony Orchestra will perform Wagner’s incredible score.
