In 2018 Willy Decker’s production of »Der Ring des Nibelungen« returns to the stage of the Semperoper Dresden. Principal Conductor Christian Thielemann, an acclaimed Wagner specialist, will direct the Dresden Staatskapelle, whom Richard Wagner called his »miraculous harp«, in this psychologically penetrating and musically explosive drama of gods and men. It was during his tenure as the Saxon court’s Kapellmeister that Richard Wagner decided to compose a work around the Nibelungen legend, and indeed the first reading of the draft libretto was held in Dresden.
Aided by a fabulous ensemble of singers, Willy Decker’s production places the battle for the power of the ring within a theatre, which becomes the backdrop for the demise of the gods and the rise of man. Thereby, the boundary between stage and reality becomes ever more blurred. This is a powerful interpretation of Wagner’s music drama, featuring heartrending characters and fantastic images.

This is a bespoke tour, that is, we organise the tickets on your behalf, which you settle for once secured, and we can also organise the hotel accommodation on your behalf. We suggest hotels, but you are free to choose which you prefer.

As Dresden is not connected to many airports, we suggest taking a flight to Berlin Tegel airport, and then we can suggest a company to provide a return limo service to Dresden and back to Berlin Tegel.

As Dresden has a wealth of art and historic buildings, we will suggest a schedule of visits to make, but once there, you guys are free to do your own thing as well.

As this opportunity to enjoy this acclaimed Ring Cycle at a reasonable price is strictly limited in this way, please let us know by return if you would like to attend as our invited guest.
