Meet The Cast Of Das Rheingold
09 October, 2023
Meet the extraordinary international cast for our production of Wagner’s epic Das Rheingold.
Chief Conductor Simone Young is one of the world’s most celebrated conductors of the epic operas of Richard Wagner, having led complete cycles of Der Ring des Nibelungen at the Vienna Staatsoper, the Staatsoper in Berlin and in Hamburg.
On November 16 and 18, 2023, the Sydney Symphony begins a four-year adventure to present the complete Ring Cycle in concert, performing one opera each year in the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall. These will mark the first performances of the Ring operas in Sydney in nearly 30 years.
Performed without costumes or sets, this is a pure musical experience, with the immense beauty of Wagner’s music taking centre stage. Simone Young has assembled a truly world-class cast of singers to present this work, including experienced Wagnerians that she has worked with many times before and others forging their own place among the great singers of the world.
Let’s meet the cast of Das Rheingold.
