Just in: Richard Jones to stage his second London Ring, jointly with the Metmain
The post-modern director was heavily criticised for his 1990s Ring at Covent Garden.
He has now been engaged by English National Opera to repeat the feat,in coproduction with the Met.
ENO has commissioned a new English translation from John Deathridge. There are no cast details yet.
English National Opera (ENO) is to bring Wagner’s Ring Cycle to the London Coliseum, starting with The Valkyrie this Autumn, subject to any further lockdown restrictions.
Directed by the award-winning Richard Jones, and marking the first time in more than 15 years since ENO last staged The Ring, all four parts of The Ring Cycle will be staged at the London Coliseum over five years. Rhinegold will premiere in 2022/23 followed by a reprise of The Valkyrie, and new productions of Siegfried and Twilight of the Gods in 2024 and 2025 consecutively. The Metropolitan Opera is co-producing.
