GP at the Met: Wagner’s Ring Cycle
About the Opera
Robert Lepage’s acclaimed new production of Wagner’s Der Ring des
Nibelungen, will air on Great Performances at the Met, September 11-14 in
primetime each night on PBS stations (check local listings), as a major
television event.

The operas – Das Rheingold, Die Walkre, Siegfried, and Gtterdmmerung —
will be preceded on Monday, September 10 at 9 p.m. (check local listings) by
the airing of award-winning filmmaker Susan Froemke’s documentary Wagner’
s Dream, which chronicles the backstage story of the creation of this
ambitious new staging.

This is only the third time a complete Ring cycle has been aired on PBS. In
1983, Great Performances aired Patrice Chereau’s production of the Ring
conducted by Pierre Boulez from the Bayreuth Festival, and in 1990, Live
from the Met (the precursor of Great Performances at the Met) presented Otto
Schenk’s Metropolitan Opera production, conducted by James Levine.

Both the operas and the documentary will be screened in movie theaters
throughout the U.S. and Canada this spring and summer , and in more than 20
countries including Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Chile, the Czech
Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Japan, Malta
, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the
United Kingdom.

Wagner’s Dream

A documentary by Susan Froemke

(PBS: Monday, September 10, 9 p.m.)

The stakes could not be higher as visionary director Robert Lepage, some of
the world’s greatest operatic artists, and the Metropolitan Opera tackle
Wagner’s Ring cycle. An intimate look at the enormous theatrical and
musical challenges of staging opera’s most monumental work, the film
chronicles the quest to fulfill Wagner’s dream of a perfect Ring.

“A highly entertaining outing for operaphiles and operaphobes alike” (

Das Rheingold (The Rhine Gold)

(PBS: Tuesday, September 11)

Conducted by James Levine

Starring Wendy Bryn Harmer (Freia), Stephanie Blythe (Fricka), Patricia
Bardon (Erda), Richard Croft (Loge), Gerhard Siegel (Mime), Bryn Terfel (
Wotan), Eric Owens (Alberich), Franz-Josef Selig (Fasolt), Hans-Peter Knig (

In the first opera in the Ring cycle, the gods of Valhalla clash with
underworld dwarves and brawny giants, with disastrous consequences. The evil
Alberich steals gold from the Rhine and uses it to forge a ring of
unimaginable power. Wotan, the king of the gods, uses magic to steal the
ring, but Alberich places a curse that guarantees misery for whoever wears
it.  Wotan’s unwillingness to part with the ring leads him to break a
contract with the giants who have built the gods’ new castle in the sky,
setting in motion a chain of events that will end in his own destruction.

“A triumph, at once subtle and spectacular, intimate and epic.” (The

Die Walküre (The Valkyrie)

(PBS: Wednesday, September 12)

Conducted by James Levine

Starring Deborah Voigt (Brünnhilde), Eva-Maria Westbroek (Sieglinde),
Stephanie Blythe (Fricka), Jonas Kaufmann (Siegmund), Bryn Terfel (Wotan),
Hans-Peter Knig (Hunding)

The mysterious hero Siegmund finds shelter in the strangely familiar arms of
a lonely woman named Sieglinde. Their forbidden love leads Wotan’s
daughter, the warrior maiden Brünnhilde, to defy morality and intervene on
behalf of the hero. Brünnhilde’s transgression forces her father to choose
between his love for his favorite daughter and his duty to his wife, the
formidable goddess Fricka. Overcome with grief, Wotan takes away Brünnhilde
’s godlike powers and puts her to sleep on a mountaintop, surrounded by a
ring of magic fire that can only be crossed by the bravest of heroes.

“Die Walküre enthralls.” (The Huffington Post)


(PBS: Thursday, September 13)

Conducted by Fabio Luisi

Starring Deborah Voigt (Brünnhilde), Patricia Bardon (Erda), Jay Hunter
Morris (Siegfried), Gerhard Siegel (Mime), Bryn Terfel (The Wanderer), Eric
Owens (Alberich)

The young hero Siegfried grows up in the wilderness, raised by Alberich’s
conniving brother Mime. He puts together the broken pieces of the sword
Nothung, uses it to slay the fearsome dragon Fafner, and takes the ring for
himself. To fulfill his destiny, he must overcome one more opponent—Wotan,
now disguised as the Wanderer, who knows the world of the gods is coming to
an end—and cross through the magic fire to awaken his true love, Brü

“Visually stunning and dramatically engrossing.” (Associated Press)

Gtterdmmerung (Twilight of the Gods)

(PBS: Friday, September 14)

Conducted by Fabio Luisi

Starring Deborah Voigt (Brünnhilde), Wendy Bryn Harmer (Gutrune), Waltraud
Meier (Waltraute), Jay Hunter Morris (Siegfried), Iain Paterson (Gunther),
Eric Owens (Alberich), Hans-Peter Knig (Hagen)

Siegfried and Brünnhilde’s love is torn apart by the curse of the ring. A
trio of scheming humans separates the two heroes in a desperate attempt to
steal the ring for themselves. Their villainous plan fails, but they succeed
in murdering Siegfried. Heartbroken, Brünnhilde takes the ring and leaps
into the hero’s funeral pyre, causing a global cataclysm and the twilight
of the gods.
