Why See Colorado Symphony - Wagner The Ring without Words?
A rare gem for the concert hall
Wagner's staggering Ring Cycle is a cornerstone of the operatic repertoire, a monumental epic of warring Gods and mortals, brave heroes and nefarious villains fighting for the titular ring that will give them dominion over the world. As an opera, it takes on average 15 hours to complete, but in this very special program music Director Brett Mitchell will play Lorien Maazel's distilled version, specially transcribes for the concert hall.
First recorded in 1987, Maazel believed that above the voices of the cycle, it was in the orchestra that the essence of the work lay. In removing the words and condensing the score, he produced a concise version of the work that retains the thickly textured complexity of the piece, whilst making it more accessible to all audiences.
Opening night: 20 April 2018
