General Information

Description

New production.

Driven by their insatiable craving for wealth and power, the opera’s protagonists violate law and social norms, destroying nature in the process. This parable of the world is also the most fairytale-like of Wagner’s creation: in addition to the gods and the Nibelungs, the story is full of giants, dwarves, mermaids, and the primordial mythical entity called Erda, all of whom drive the action. Here, the conflicts at hand haven’t yet reached the apocalyptic climax awaiting in the other operas. Nor does Wotan yet know that the consequences of his actions will lead to the inexorable downfall of the gods.

Thomas Konieczny will make his debut in Zurich as Wotan, a role that earned him rave reviews at the Vienna State Opera. Christopher Purves debuts as Alberich – Wotan’s fiercest opponent.

More information is available on the official website of the opera house.
