Houston Grand Opera is presenting it’s first ever Ring production. This will be the individual operas of the Ring, sadly it will not be presented in a festival setting of all 4 operas. However, each of the operas has it’s own great aspects and here is an opportunity to order early, get great seats and save a little Rheingold in the bargain. Houston will be presenting the La Fura Dels Baus production originally from Valencia Spain.

This stunning production takes us to a mythical world of dwarfs and gods, magical helmets, and a ring that endows its wearer with ultimate power.
Deep beneath the surface of the Rhine, Alberich, a wily and treacherous dwarf, lusts after the Rhinemaidens’ treasure: a cache of gold.Whoever owns the gold and forges it into a ring will have power over the world. Unable to catch one of the beautiful maidens, Alberich steals the gold.
And so, the legend of the ring, the greatest musical achievement of all time, begins.
“Iain Paterson, a fine Scottish bass-baritone making an impressive American debut, did everything he could with the sinister, charmless bully he was directed to portray. He sang splendidly. This is a talent to watch.” – Chicago Tribune
“… the evening’s runaway star was tenor Stefan Margita as the wily Loge. Singing with clarity and an exhilarating vein of sardonic insinuation, he brought both vocal allure and nimble theatrical inventiveness to the role.” – San Francisco Chronicle
Conductor – Patrick Summers
Director – Carlus Padrissa/La Fura Dels Baus
Associate Director – Esteban Mu
