4.0 out of 5 stars New La Scala production with Barenboim conduucting !, 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wagner: Gotterdammerung [Lance Ryan, Gerd Grochowski, Johannes Martin Kränzle] [Blu-ray] [2014] (Blu-ray)
Any production of this mighty work demands a lot from all concerned. Luckily most of the cast here are well up to their tasks.
Most important however is the conducting of Daniel Barenboim, who leads the fine orchestra through this score, supporting the singers and the chorus with ease, pace and dynamism. The Brünnhilde is Ingrid Theorin, a new name to me, a fine singer and actress, sustaining her voice right up to the Immolation scene. Lance Ryan, the Siegfried, shows himself well capable of singing and acting his role. Who else is there around today who can do it any better?
The rest of the cast all are on the plus side, only the use of dancers on the stage leave me wondering if they are really necessary.
The production is not unhelpful, but this work is hard to stage anyway. Great that the conductor guides it right to the End.
For any follower of Rings this is well worth acquiring !
