Organised by artistic director Ádám Fischer with an international cast and creative team since 2006, the Wagner in Budapest Festival is a genuine success story. In the early editions, the repertoire expanded by one opera from The Ring of the Nibelung tetralogy each year, as a result of which the entire Ring cycle can now be enjoyed on consecutive days just as Richard Wagner intended. The Béla Bartók National Concert Hall is remarkably suitable for the execution of a psychological, chamber music-based interpretation, explained Ádám Fischer of the era-defining masterpiece, which he intentionally devised as a unique Ring production to make maximum use of the characteristics of the Müpa stage. This semi-staged concert hall performance brings mimicry much more to the fore than in a traditional opera house, while the acoustics also better emphasise the magical properties of the Wagner sound to provide a complete musical, visual, poetic and theatrical experience in keeping with the Wagnerian concept of total art. 

German-language performance, with projected subtitles in Hungarian.
