Notes on the performancesOpen 
As the saying goes, ‘Never change a winning team’. And so continues the collaborative effort between Daniel Barenboim and Guy Cassiers on Der Ring des Nibelungen, the first time in La Scala’s history that the four-part epic has been performed in its original language and with the same director. In 2013, on the occasion of the bicentenary of Wagner’s birth, the complete Ring cycle will be performed in the same week, for two consecutive weeks.

This production of Siegfried, which sees the twilight of the Gods and the dawning of the era of the Heroes, features some of the finest Wagnerian voices of today, including Lance Ryan in the role of Siegfried, Anna Larsson as Erda, and Nina Stemme, recipient of the Italian National Association of Music Critics award for her Brünnhilde in Die Walküre.
