The Ring of the Nibelung

After more than forty years, Richard Wagner's tetralogy 'Der Ring des Nibelungen' is returning to Theater Basel. In contrast to Wagner's idea of the Gesamtkunstwerk, a collaborative work of art is to be created in the years 2023-2025. The new production by Benedikt von Peter, under the musical direction of Jonathan Nott, can be experienced in two cycles at the end of the 24/25 season: on four evenings in just six days. Sixteen hours of music theatre.
