Written By The Wagnerian on Saturday, 5 January 2019 | 9:39:00 am


Longborough Festival Opera will continue its strong tradition of annual Wagner productions with its second Ring cycle, to begin with, Rheingold in 2019.


Its previous ring was met with much critical acclaim only a few short years ago - even here at the Wagnerian. Once again, LFO will bring the Ring to its unusual stage in the "heart of England", with a new production from Amy Lane, staff director at the ROH. Lane, a former opera singer, most recent work for the ROH includes the revival of the Royal Opera's Don Giovanni(Houston Grand Opera) and its Joint Associate Director on Die Walküre, Associate Director on Götterdämmerung and an Assistant Director for Hansel and Gretel.
