In the Wagner jubilee year 2013, it is prophesied, Wagner’s tetralogy “The Nibelung’s Ring” will be performed a good twenty times somewhere in the world. Sixteen hours’ worth of visions of the fall of the world at each go, interpreted so variously that the human perceptive faculty cannot keep up. If you still want to know what it is all about, the theft of the Rhine Gold, the fatal power of the golden ring, the incestuous siblings, the father-daughter confrontation, the fearless bumpkin and the collapse of the entire edifice, there is always the condensed version by Loriot at your disposal. Genuinely well-informed and with all due respect for the subject-matter, Germany’s best-known author of humorous sketches and caricatures, the late Loriot, came to grips with Wagner’s massive work and distilled out of mythical monumentality a notably human story of love and envy, despotism and rebellion against it, couched in wittily flippant commentary. Loriot’s unique slant on the Ring was staged to celebrate the centenary of the Duisburg theatre, and a revival of the successful evening has been entrusted to the Duisburg Philharmonic under Axel Kober, a vocal ensemble well versed in Wagner, and the Ring commentator Rudolf Kowalski.
