The Ring in 4 Days!  Tickets on sale now to the Leipzig Ring May 5 – 8, 2016
Want to see The Ring on stage?  Richard Wagner’s birthplace Leipzig will present one Ringcycle next year on four consecutive days.  We have not heard of any opera house attempting to present the 15+ hours of the Ring operas in only four days.  The Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, one of the great orchestras of the world, will be in the pit, conducted by Oper Leipzig’s Intendant and General Music Director Ulf Schirmer.  They are one tough ensemble! 

This will be the Oper Leipzig’s first Ring in several decades.  Tickets may be purchased online,, or by telephone.  If you call, ask for Ms. Sabine Peschka at 011-49-341-1261-270.

 Oper Leipzig will also present the three early Wagner operas, Die Feen, Das Liebesverbot, andRienzi, on May 20 – 22, 2016.
