Opera Ireland proudly presents "Das Rheingold" (The Gold of the Rhine River) in the Gaiety Theatre on 19th and 21st November. It's a concert performance in which Opera Ireland is delighted to have Finnish native Marit Sauramo singing the role of Erda. The concert is a tantalising introduction to Richard Wagner's ‘Der Ring des Nibelungen', also known as The Ring Cycle. It tells the mythical story of the conflict between gods, giants and dwarfs over an enchanted treasure; a mystical golden ring that gives the wearer universal power but at the cost of forever renouncing love.
From the opening sounds of the River Rhine's rippling waters through the majestic ‘Entry of the Gods into Valhalla' you will be swept away by Wagner's magnificent music.
This promises to be an enchanting and magical evening of glorious music. Tickets are available at the Gaiety Theatre Gaiety Theatre or tel. 01-677 1717.
