The standard by which all other Ring Cycles are judged by, Decca commits the white-hot performances of Georg Solti, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, and a raft of great singers, to a single Pure Audio Blu-ray Disc.
The much-anticipated Deutsche Grammophon release of the Metropolitan Opera’s new Ring Cycle introduces operagoers to the trail-blazing productions of Robert Lepage. Building on strong casts, conductors, and audio/video recordists, this set becomes the ultimate Ring of our times.
The conclusion of Wagner’s Ring is done in grand fashion with this visually stunning interpretation from Zubin Mehta and Orquestra de la Comunitat Valenciana, perfectly suited to Blu-ray.
It’s the original Ring to “rule them all” in a dazzlingly modern production that blends science fiction with Cirque du Soleil all captured in splendid 1080i.
