Wagner's Ring Cycle
Join us as we reach the end of a remarkable three-year journey with the culmination of our acclaimed Wagner Ring Cycle project: in our boldest undertaking yet, the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Principal Conductor Vladimir Jurowski perform two star-studded semi-staged complete Ring Cycles at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall, our London home.
‘This concert cycle of Wagner’s Ring is worth waiting for; Jurowski’s measured interpretation is revelatory ... The gain in detail, clarity and projection, compared with the generalised cushion of background sound when the score is played in a theatre pit, is exhilarating ... Yet never were the singers drowned: a miracle of balance.’ The Times, January 2018
‘Vladimir Jurowski marked his 10th anniversary with the London Philharmonic Orchestra – one of the glorious partnerships of UK musical life – with the opening opera of a complete Ring Cycle between now and 2021 ... The terrific LPO and Jurowski, proven Wagnerians all, stole the show.’ The Observer, February 2018
General booking opens at 10am on Monday 4th November 2019. To take advantage of priority booking from 10am on Thursday 31 October 2019, become a Friend of the LPO.
Subscription package ticket prices for all four operas: £450, £320, £225, £165, £90.
Please note that Wagner’s Ring Cycle is only available to book as a subcription package of all four operas in one Cycle. Individual operas cannot be booked separately, and it is not possible to mix and match operas between the two Cycles.
