Now confirmed to be revived in 2013.

For the first time in its history the Salzburg Marionette Theatre will stage works by Richard Wagner. A compressed version of the "Ring of the Nibelung" will be premiered in co-operation with the Salzburg State Theatre end of March 2012. The staged version will guide the spectator in a little more than two hours through Wagner's world of the Ring and will show the best known scenes through unrivalled puppetry of the Salzburg Marionettes. In a very clear manner the audience will be led through Wagner's epos, the simple form will make it also for Wagner beginners or a younger public easily accessable. More than that, the evening will give the Wagner enthusiast plenty of pleasure and musically involving hours taking in advantage Sir Georg Solti's acclaimed recordings of the operas.
