In the waters of the Rhine, deformed dwarf Alberich steals the gold he needs to forge a ring that will make him ruler of the world if he renounces love. Wotan, ruler of the gods, in turn steals Alberich’s gold, using
it to pay for his luxurious fortress, the seat of his power. Stripped of his ring, the dwarf curses all those who wear it.

Wagner’s masterful work returns to the Opéra de Montréal for the first time in over 20 years. Das Rheingold, the first part of Wagner’s tetralogy, is a true parable of the history of the world and was a source of inspiration for The Lord of the Rings. Bewitching music sung by mythical creatures makes for a total experience in a world in which gods, humans, and giants cross paths.
