Der Ring des Nibelungen
In the 2018 festival season, the Bayreuth Festival presents a version of Richard Wagner’s “Ring des Nibelungen” specially designed for children as part of the “Wagner für Kinder” (Wagner for Children) project.
Musical direction of the children’s opera is in the hands of Azis Sadikovic. As in previous years, music is provided by the Brandenburg State Orchestra Frankfurt (Oder).
The premiere of the children’s opera “Der Ring des Nibelungen” takes place on 25 July 2018 at the Bayreuth Festival Probebühne (Rehearsal Stage) IV, and this will be followed by nine other performances up to 4 August 2018.
The children’s opera for this is year aimed at children between the ages of 8 and 12, and we hope you will understand that we cannot give admission to children under five years of age.
The ambitious “Wagner für Kinder” project is made possible by the friendly and generous financial support of our main sponsor, as well as our other sponsors and supporters.
