A beautifully produced volume celebrating Wagner’s Ring in full-page color photographs, and complete with historical materials from the Metropolitan Opera’s archives. In this unique volume, Nancy Ellison captures James Levine’s and Otto Schenk’s landmark production of The Ring of the Nibelung as it was performed in full for the last time at the Metropolitan Opera in 2009. Wagner’s Ring is a supreme challenge for any opera company, and no other staging matches the spirit of romanticism of Schenk’s vision, which is based on original notes written by Wagner. Ellison presents the world’s greatest operatic journey in a visual progression that leads readers through the complete narrative of each music drama: Das Rheingold, Die Walküre, Siegfried, and Götterdämmerung.

“Though meticulously composed and edited, the shots are all from live performances, so they catch motion, expression and the sense of immediacy as well as the poetics of the overall concept.” ~Opera News
"Loved by many Wagnerians who appreciated Otto Schenk for retelling the saga instead of interpreting it, the Schenk/Levine production is now celebrated with a magnificent book with lots of awesome photographs by Nancy Ellison...on the whole the book is a treat to read... this beautifully produced volume in full-page color photographs, complete with historical materials and a timeline culled from the Metropolitan Opera’s archives will no doubt be on the wish list for Christmas." ~WagnerOpera.net
