CONTAINS SPOILERS BELOW

The Copenhagen Ring finally rolls to a close. I'm not sure I really like director Kasper Bech Holten's take on the opening which has the three Norns as purist Wagnerite audience members waving old programmes, illustrations and books about Wagner. Its original and must have provided some fun in the theatre but the jokes are laboured and overworked and, of course, there is zero tension or drama when the rope snaps because there IS no rope nor anything else to represent it. After this unpromising start, the rest of Act 1 goes like a dream. I love Brunnhilde's abode, now decked out like a conservatory where she and Siegfried take coffee and tend the plants before he sets off on his adventures - they even have the woodbird from 'Siegfried' as a pet in a cage! From there we go to the Gibichung hall. Holten tells us in his notes that this is based on some corrupt dictatorship like former Yugoslavia and he succeeds in spades with the set and costumes. Of course, this is hardly a novel idea for the Gibichungs but here, it is carried out extremely well as are the central trio of Gunther (showy but essentially weak leader), Gutrune (bleached bottle blonde, well dressed but cheap at the same time) and Hagen (health and fitness freak who meditates but is basically a sociopath). Waltraute's Valkyrie outfit has been updated and Brunnhilde mixes her an elderflower presse whilst looking at recent photos of family Wotan. Of course, one of Holten's biggest concept is to have Brunnhilde pregnant from the start of the opera. This is ok as far as it goes BUT it does (perhaps inevitably) dominate much of the action to come and not always in a good way.

From a mainly excellent first act, things go downhill a little in Act 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars A triumph 2 Mar. 2017
By Malagrowther - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The Kapser Holten / Royal Danish Opera production is a curate's egg (mixed bag) until this last opera in the cycle, where it all comes together, triumphantly. The production is dramatically as well as musically thrilling -- fully persuasive that the Ring is as close as we come, in the last couple of hundred years, to Dante's Comedia as a successful achievement of post-classical epic. Wagner's so-called backslidings to the disavowed conventions of Grand Opera are brilliantly vindicated. The production knowingly builds on the Regietheater tradition established by Boulez / Chereau, but to amplify and renew it. If you know and care about the work, it's indispensable; if it's new to you, you'll find it a hair-raising, heart-melting introduction.

2.0 out of 5 stars Horrible staging, music ok 11 Oct. 2011
By Cabra montés - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Although orchestra and singers sounds fine (nothing close to Solti's cast and VPO impressive powers) this is a horrible version of the last on the Ring's cycle. Siegfried and Brunhilde look old and everything less heroic, and machine guns instead of swords its hard to swallow. This production should have remained as a cheap CD production.
