The Staatsoper's season 2022/23 beginning is fully marked by Wagner's »Ring«-tetralogy. All four premieres will take place in just one week in October, lending the new »Ring« a rare cyclical unity from the very outset. After two further performances in autumn 2022, the tetralogy will be shown again at the FESTTAGE 2023. The new »Ring« – perhaps the greatest challenge for an opera house and its artists  – will be staged by director Dmitri Tcherniakov. After Daniel Barenboim had to cancel his participation in the new production, Christian Thielemann will take over the musical direction of the first and third cycles. The second cycle will be conducted by Thomas Guggeis.

A myth, a heroic epic, a family saga – perhaps all of these things — make up Richard Wagner’s »Ring« tetralogy. A panorama of figures, situations and events unfolds like a universe that is hard to decipher due to its sheer breadth and multiple twists and turns. And all this is borne by truly major themes, such as love and hate, trust and betrayal, envy and empathy, power and powerlessness, life and death and much more, in ever new constellations. Over several generations, the story develops, comprising various storylines, which are ultimately brought together and resolved.
