Opera Australia has announced that a new production of Der Ring des Nibelungen will be performed in Brisbane in three cycles between 10 November and 5 December 2020. Musical direction will be in the hands of French conductor Philippe Auguin, and stage direction will be by China’s Chen Shi-Zheng. The production will use giant LED video screens instead of conventional sets; so visually, all things will be possible. Vitalij Kowaljow as Wotan, Allison Oakes as Brünnhilde and Stefan Vinke as Siegfried will lead an international cast, and the Queensland Symphony Orchestra will perform Wagner’s incredible score. For more details, please see: three cycles have virtually sold out already, however Renaissance Tours has announced specially crafted tours to all three cycles led by Peter Bassett, and some premium seats remain for the second cycle: 19, 21, 24 and 26 November 2020. To take advantage of these remaining premium seats, see:


With many thanks and all good wishes,
