Description
Recorded live in 2008 at the Deutsches Nationaltheater in Weimar, this innovative production by Michael Schulz favors naturalistic acting and simple but effective stage effects. Erin Caves and Kirsten Blanck are touching as the briefly reuinited twins Siegmund and Sieglinde, while Catherine Foster commands the role of the Valkyrie Brünnhilde, the favorite of her father, Wotan (Renatus Mészár).

"Foster does well to portray Brünnhilde both with girlish innocence and gravity and has the role's vocal demands very much in her grasp…. With fine orchestral support from the Weimar Staatskapelle and excellent picture and sound, this looks to be a Ring well worth exploring."—Musical Criticism

"In the fight between Siegmund and Hunding, the interventions of Brünnhilde and Wotan are well staged by the use of opening panels obscuring and then revealing the parts of the battle. The final skewering of Siegmund on Wotan's spear is horrific in its simplicity…. Foster is an imposing, redheaded Brünnhilde, all girlish enthusiasm and touching vulnerability as she reacts to her father's wrath. In the final scene with Wotan she is superb…. Kirsten Blanck's Sieglinde … is as fine a portrayal of edgy and disturbed paranoia as you could ever wish to see…. St. Clair is emerging now as a persuasive Wagnerian. He can vary his tempo to great dramatic effect and accompanies his actors with subtlety and assurance."—Musicweb Intrenational
