The making of The Ring is an adventure in itself, not in the least because the project has been spread out over a number of years, and thus created step by step. Guy Cassiers and his team have reached the midpoint of Wagner's tale about the downfall of the gods. With Siegfried and Götterdämmerung we are approaching the tragic conclusion to the narrative. With Das Rheingold and Die Walküre, Guy Cassiers has laid the substantial and formal foundation upon which further developments are built. It is therefore necessary to look back at some of the starting points of the project.
In May 2010, Das Rheinghold, the first part of the The Ring of the Nibelung, premiered in Milan. Die Walküre premiered on December 7, 2011. Siegfried, the first part of the The Ring of the Nibelung, opened in the Staatsoper of Berlin on October 3, 2012.
