With its opening, mysterious chords depicting the creation of the world, the terrifying anvil-accompanied descent into the underworld, and its culmination in the triumphant "Entry of the Gods into Valhalla," Das Rheingold is the first installment of Richard Wagner’s epic Ring Cycle. NCO Artistic & Music Director Timothy Myers conducts the 80-player NCO Orchestra and a stellar cast in the company’s first presentation of a complete Wagner opera in this semi-staged production.

Sung in German with projected English surtitles.
