Background


Director Julia Burbach and Music Director Peter Selwyn reunite after their award-winning production of Britten's The Rape of Lucretia (Grimeborn 2018) with a new, contemporary take on the curtain-raiser to Wagner's Ring Cycle.


Jonathan Dove's acclaimed orchestration is performed in London for the first time since its premiere in the 1990s, with 18 live musicians from the Orpheus Ensemble and an exceptional cast of singers, many of whom are giving role debuts.
