Montreal Opera presents Das Rheingold – tickets available
Montreal Opera presents Das Rheingold – The Opéra de Montréal presents one of the city’s most highly-anticipated shows of the fall, being staged at the company for the first time! Wagner’s masterful work Das Rheingold was an inspiration for the famous Lord of the Rings trilogy. This grandiose production transports spectators to a magical world: a dwarf forges an all-powerful ring, sparking the anger of the gods, who tear each other apart to possess it, even though it means they will have to renounce love. A true environmental parable, the story tells of a world destroyed by the appetite for excessive gain and the martial spirit of the peoples who inhabit it.
Featuring over 115 artists, singers, and supernumeraries, this production confirms the Opéra de Montréal’s ambition to offer experiences that go well beyond Montreal’s expectations, thereby further contributing to its cultural influence. Part of the company’s bold program of works for the 2018-2019 season, Das Rheingold promises to thrill both fans of the fantastic and music lovers with its captivating score and story, in which gods, giants, dwarves, and nymphs wage a merciless war.
“The Opéra de Montréal is once again presenting a must-see event with Das Rheingold, which we are staging at the company for the very first time. Voices that can sing Wagner’s music are very rare, as they require a singular dramatic power, and we are proud to be bringing together several of the finest international and Canadian Wagnerians, including Ryan McKinny, who recently sang at the Metropolitan Opera in New York and at the renowned Bayreuth Festival. We are very excited to have him sing his first Wotan with us,” states Patrick Corrigan, General Director of the Opéra de Montréal.
