The Mythology of the Ring - Richard Wagner

Mythos Ring und Richard Wagner

This intriguing search for devotees and connoisseurs of Richard Wagner's «The Ring of the Nibelung» takes us on a spectacular journey from the far flung coast of the Philippines to Manaus in the Amazonian rainforest and a tiny Berber village in the Sahara. As well as encounters with Prince Charles, Franz Welser-Möst and Achim Freyer, viewers also meet Star Wars fanatics and Lord of the Rings fans. But what parallels do these modern fables have with Wagner's epic? Is Wagner's grandiose theater work a global myth, that is relevant to us all or is it the music of the rich and powerful? Does power in the operas always equate with the person in possession of the ring? A funny and irreverent film about an awe-inspiring myth, which has touched countless people profoundly since its inception.
