“The perpetrators in the most violent opera in the history of music are actually perfectly nice people. Only a common passion seals their fate. They want to possess more than they can afford, more power than they are due. In their blind and loveless pursuit of gain they destroy themselves and their world.” This is how Vicco von Bülow alias Loriot introduces the complex mythical plot of Richard Wagner’s four-part cycle “The Ring of the Nibelungen”, which he has condensed from its original length of over 16 hours into just three. This declared Wagner enthusiast wanted to encourage Wagner sceptics to experience these dramatic events of love, envy, triumphalism and betrayal and in doing so has given many Wagnerians great pleasure. Loriot’s good-natured commentaries are simply the connections tying together the musical highlights of the “Ring” tetralogy, which can be heard on this evening sung by specialist Wagnerian solo vocalists. Kapellmeister Wen-Pin Chien conducts and the well-known actor Rudolf Kowalski reads Loriot’s texts. These will enlighten you in the convoluted relationships between gods, humans, giants and dwarves in an amusing, conversational manner so that by the end you will be able to hold your own in any conversation about Wagner.
