DAS RHEINGOLD

Das Rheingold is the first of the four operas that constitute Richard Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen. It was originally written as an introduction to the tripartite Ring, but the cycle is now generally regarded as consisting of four individual operas.
Das Rheingold received its premiere at the National Theatre in Munich on 22 September 1869. The opera received its premiere as part of the complete cycle on 13 August 1876, in the Bayreuther Festspielhaus.
