Deep beneath the River Rhine glints the ancient Rhine gold. Far above, the great gods complete their fortress of Valhalla and prepare to rule over the earth. But the treasure in the Rhine contains a power stronger than any living being, and all it demands is a willingness to renounce love. In the opening chapter of his epic Ring Cycle, Richard Wagner doesn’t just tell a story of mythic power; he creates a whole new imaginative world in music. Vladimir Jurowski’s Wagner interpretations have been described in the press as ‘exquisite’, and with a world-class cast headed by Matthias Goerne as Wotan, this will be a major occasion.

Please note that series discounts do not apply to this performance.

Generously supported by members of the Orchestra’s Ring Cycle Syndicate and patrons of our Golden Gala Evening.

As well as standard concert tickets, we are offering special packages including pre- and post-concert receptions and the chance to meet the musicians that will bring Wagner's great music drama to the stage.

Crucially, they also include a donation to the Orchestra towards the cost of this landmark project and to enable us to continue, with Vladimir, to be known as the orchestra that produces London's most exciting and adventurous concerts.
