The Bavarian State Opera has been flagging up its Ring cycle, which starts at the weekend, conducted by Kent Nagano, his first. The director is Andreas Kriegenburg.

Cast includes Danish Bass-baritone Johan Reuter as Wotan in his House debut, Mezzo Sophie Koch as Fricka, Wolfgang Koch as Alberich, Stefan Margitaas Loge and Aga Mikolaj as Freia. And because it’s February they’ve stripped everyone down to bra and flimsies.

In the first scene, they take away their clothes to be searched for Rhine gold. Then they all climb into boxes.
