Das Rheingold
In Short
At the beginning of the Ring stands a radical decision: The Nibelung Alberich renounces love and forges the fateful ring that provides power over everything and everyone. Chief god Wotan bases his order of rule on other means, namely contracts. With the construction of his castle Valhalla, however, he has made a mighty mistake. Stephan Kimmig's production exposes the colportage-like and clownish features of the hunt for the ring.

Die Walküre
In Short
The second part of Wagner's tetralogy tells the love story of Sieglinde and Siegmund, Wotan's search for a way out, Brünnhilde's refusal to obey orders and her successive punishment. The three acts are designed by three different directorial teams. The Dutch puppetry collective Hotel Modern created the first act, light artist Urs Schönebaum designed the second, and installation artist Ulla von Brandenburg realized her ideas in the third act.

In Short
In order to save his empire, Wotan, father of the gods, needs the help of the free and independant hero Siegfried, offspring of Sieglinde and Siegmund's incestuous love affair. But not everything goes according to Wotan's plan - Siegfried proves to be an impertinent hooligan and the end of the gods seems inevitable. „Most exciting music theater“, Die Welt commented in 2000 at the premiere of Jossi Wieler's and Sergio Morabito's production, which is part of the new Stuttgart Ring cycle.

In Short
What began with the forging of the Ring in the Rheingold continues now in the last part of The Ring with intrigue and perjury. The end symbolizes the gods' downfall - and the Ring ends up back where it originally came from: in the river Rhine. The Götterdämmerung is staged by director Marco Štorman, who most recently staged John Adams' Nixon in China in Stuttgart. He also realized experimental projects for the Staatsoper Stuttgart with the operetta The Flower of Hawaii at the Stuttgart Harbor and the gaming project Faith Love Hope.
