Creation: Ring of the Nibelung for Children
Out of Stock. Delivery time unknown.
DescriptionThis book documents the production of Wagner's Ring Cycle for Children, from the very first sketches to the last curtain call at the premiere in the roof tent of the Vienna State Opera and illustrates the chronology of a theatre event full of magic. The texts were provided by Ioan Holender, director of the Vienna State Opera, and by Matthias von Stegmann who not only directed the German premiere and the first European performance, but also wrote the libretto and prepared a completely revised and translated German version of Wagner's Ring Cycle for Children. Photographer Lois Lammerhuber closely documented each individual stage of the production, offering viewers a look behind, above and under the stage. What does it take to make a first-rate operatic event come true - from initial talks of the director with the singers, to conceiving the stage set and designing the costumes, to rehearsing the singers, the dress rehearsal and the first night itself. Text in English German & French.
