Günter von Kannen in Wagner: Das Rheingold

Wagner: Das Rheingold

1991 NR

This lavish production of "Das Rheingold" restages composer Richard Wagner's ambitious four-part epic "Der Ring des Nibelungen." Günter von Kannen performs the role of Alberich, a thief who steals the Rheingold from the bottom of the river and renounces love forever, to the horror of the Rhine daughters who guard the ring of gold.
