Synopsis

To honor Richard Wagner’s 200th birthday, Latin America’s famous opera house in Buenos Aires hosts a one-of-a-kind project: Performing Wagner’s powerful music drama “The Ring of the Nibelung” on stage in a single day. Stage Director Valentina Carrasco, who has worked with the award-winning Catalonian theatre group “La Fura dels Baus” for the past ten years, transposes the “Colón Ring” into the 1970s – the period of Argentina’s military dictatorship. Symbols of that age are seen on the costumes, while the characters also make references to the period in their behavior and gestures. LENGTH: Part 1 – 83’ // Part 2 – 112’ // Part 3 – 72’ // Part 4 – 122’ ——- Also available: DOCUMENTARY – The Colón Ring – Wagner in Buenos Aires by Hans Christoph von Bock (90’).
