Das Rheingold at Opéra de Montréal

02.11.2018



For the first time in 20 years, Das Rheingold is coming back to Montreal -- this time in the Minnesota Opera production by Opéra de Montréal, with an international cast. The Montreal Metropolitan Orchestra will be conducted by Michael Christie.

Das Rheingold is the first opera to have been presented in the specially built opera house in Bayreuth, which Wagner had intended and entirely conceived for his own operas. It opens the Nibelung Ring cycle of operas, preceding Die WalküreSiegfried and Götterdämmerung.

The State of Bavaria Montreal Office is proud to support the Premiere evening on November 10, and to be present for the Let's talk opera! discussions on November 4, 2018, at Victoria Hall in Westmount (AM), and at Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec in Montreal (PM).

Let's talk opera! A stimulating exploration of each opera featuring singers and guests. Plot, music, voices, cultural context, composer... everything you ever wanted to know! Hosted by musicologist Pierre Vachon (Ph.D.). Duration: 90 minutes with coffee break.
