M1500 .W13 R6 2005 v.3 DVD
Opera. Music and libretto by Richard Wagner.
"The central part of the Ring tetralogy is precisely this: a hero has been created who would actually have had all the attributes of freedom, but nobody remembered to tell him..." (Patrice Chéreau). "One can only marvel at how enthrallingly Chéreau has made visible every ramification of this malignant idyll and bitter comedy. In its faithful service to this fabulously polished staging Brian Large's video direction is a model" (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung).
Sung in German, with optional subtitles in German, English, French, Spanish, and Chinese.
