Richard's Ring

Simply everything - slightly abridged!

Richard Vardigans explains and plays Richard Wagner's

The Ring of the Nibelung

After having foresworn love, stolen the gold and forged the ring, Alberich is all set to rule the world. Nobody reckons with the greed of the Gods.The end draws near….

 

Incest and adultery! But Fricka is not amused. As a result, Wotan is forced to allow his only son to be killed by son-in-law Hunding. Fortunately Siegmund has already arranged for a successor….

 

A fearless hero must now win back the ring with the help of his re-forged sword. As a reward he is allowed to marry one of his many aunts.

 

Alberich’s denial of love has not prevented him from engaging in reproductive activities. His son, Hagen, now seeks vengeance. This time it is Brünnhilde who is not amused. The Gods experience their long-awaited “Twilight” and the ring lands up back in the Rhine – ready for the whole story to start again.

 

One man, one piano and ca. 14 hours shorter than the original!

“The Rhinemaidens weep in C flat minor,

the audience cries with delight”

“Simply brilliant!”

After numerous sell-out performances since 2010 in Berlin, Dresden, Leipzig, Osnabrück, Mannheim, Ludwigshafen and Halle Richard is now working on an english version!

PS The individual parts of the RING can, of course be offered separately!

Prices by negociation - until now, no promotor has made a loss....!
