Alas, this is from the previous run in 2007, but as this years ROH Ring is a revival perhaps still valid to some degree.




This is a behind-the-scenes documentary, which shows the rehearsal period of the recent production of Richard Wagner's opera Siegfried, at The Royal Opera House in London. It is directed by Keith Warner, conducted by Antonio Pappano and stars John Treleaven as Siegfried, Sir John Tomlinson as Wotan and Lisa Gasteen as Brunnhilde. This 20 minute short documentary explores Keith Warner's artistic approach to this piece and demonstrates the great amount of effort that goes into such a production. Both the performers and the entire artistic crew work closely with the director, to bring his vision of Wagner's masterpiece onto stage.
