Der Ring des Nibelungen

By Necati Öziri
Staging: Christopher Rüping
 

Richard Wagner’s Ring of the Nibelung is a monster, full of otherworldly music and deep-seated hatred, full of fervent storms of love and hardcore racism, full of a deep reverence for nature and for Darwin’s blood ideology. Should it even continue to be performed today? No, not necessarily. Nevertheless, even if the Ring were to disappear into the depths of the archives, never to be performed again, it would be difficult to undo the influence this megalomaniacal work has had.
It is however possible to correct it!

Author Necati Öziri has written just such a “correction” of the Ring, in which the stories that Wagner withheld are finally told. Musicians Black Cracker and Jonas Holle have assembled an orchestra of independent musicians, countering Wagner’s one-man show with a polyphonic work, and director Christopher Rüping is finally turning his hand to opera! Hojotoho!
