Ring Zurich The First Cycle
With impressive digital images and the epochal music of Richard Wagner, the audience embarks on a 10-minute immersive journey through the fantastic world of the Ring into mythical prehistoric times, into the underwater world of the Rhine, into the depths of the earth to Nibelheim or to the gods’ castle Valhalla.
Zurich is the birthplace of Wagner’s Gesamtkunstwerk The Ring. It was here when the German composer developed the ideas for this unique and epoch-making work, and wrote and composed the complete text and much of the music.
With an audiovisual light spectacle, the opera house not only celebrates this occasion on stage, but also wants the entire city population to participate.
