THE RING RETURNS.
Richard Wagner redefined opera in the 1850s. His seamless marriage of words and music created the complete art form, which reached its pinnacle in his monumental Ring Cycle. In this instalment, Siegfried’s heroic journey reveals the minds of gods and mortals in a story of greed, fear, and self-discovery. Christine Goerke returns as Brünnhilde and the opera world will focus on the COC for this important debut. Renowned Canadian François Girard directs; COC Music Director Johannes Debus conducts.
