The ring returns to the historic place of Weimar closely connected to Wagner and Franz Liszt.
Outside Germany, the name Weimar tends to evoke mixed feelings and pictures of German history of the last hundred years. Within Germany, Weimar means a town in the state of Thuringia arguably saturated with the Deutsche Kulturâ of the Weimarer Klassikâ, the legendary Bauhaus, and finally the life and work of Franz Liszt and his son in law Wagner, Richard;. In Weimar Wagner, Richard; began composing the first part of his RING-cycle, Das Rheingoldâ. In 2008 the Nationaltheater Weimar started a new production of this unique tetralogy. The conductor is Carl St.Clair, a former student of Bernstein, Leonard. With Michael Schulzâ fine and highly intelligent staging this new Ringâ production on DVD and Blu-Ray becomes an outstanding document of contemporary opera theatre.
