In the words of one critic, The Wagner in Budapest Festival has established a new style of performing opera that builds on the characteristics and outstanding acoustics of the Béla Bartók National Concert Hall to extend far beyond the realm of the semi-staged production. Sprawled across four consecutive evenings in accordance with the composer's intentions, the Ring of the Nibelung tetralogy is directed by Hartmut Schörghofer, whom Ádám Fischer selected because we needed a director capable of expressing the concepts contained in the work in the form of images. Over more than a decade now, the Bayreuth on the Danube has staged the entire Bayreuth canon, namely all ten operas performed on the green hill during the composer's lifetime, making the best possible use of the unique properties of Müpa Budapest, and thereby casting new light on these timeless masterpieces and their infinite interpretations. 
Almost exactly 160 years will have passed between the original premire and the performance of Siegfried in June 2016: the third piece in the Ring Cycle was first heard at the inaugural Bayreuth Festival in August 1876, along with the entire tetralogy under the baton of Győr-born conductor János Richter. The international cast and creative team for the 2016 production comprises a number of sought-after Wagnerian singers: Gerhard Siegel has performed the title role at the New York Metropolitan Opera, the Vienna Staatsoper and Bayreuth; Walter Fink is a member of the Vienna Staatsoper and holds the prestigious title of Kammersänger; while Swedish soprano Elisabet Strid has played countless Wagner heroines in Europe's top opera houses.

In German with Hungarian subtitles.
