Ring of the Nibelungs for Kids
Wagner's Nibelungenring für Kinder
A recording from the Vienna State Opera,Vienna 2007
In 2007 the European premiere of «Wagner's Ring of the Nibelungs for children» took place in the children's tent on the roof of the Vienna State Opera. Based on Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle, the Japanese composer Hirofumi Misawa created an appealing opus, which places its emphasis on a mixtureof heroic epic and comedy. His free adaptation of the German heroic saga in combination with elements of Wagner's grand oeuvre, evokes fascination and interest in the historical backgrounds of the old saga as well as in Wagner's fantastic music! Never before has the story of old Germanic gods and Heros been told in a lighter way, brilliantly underlined by Misawa's music! A delightful, educational entertainment for young and old.
