Das Rheingold in Manchester

Mark Elder and the Hallé are bringing something of an early Christmas present for Wagnerians when they present Wagner's Das Rheingold in concert at the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester on Sunday 27 November 2016. It is the latest in Elder's exploration of Wagner's opera with the Hallé, having previous performed Götterdämmerung (2009) and Die Walküre (2011).

Mark Elder conducts and there is a strong line-up full of intriguing casting with Sarah Tynan, Madeleine Shaw, and Leah-Marian Jones as the Rhinemaidens, Samuel Youn as Alberich, Iain Paterson as Wotan, Susan Bickley as Fricka, Emma Bell as Freia, Reinhard Hagen as Fasolt, Clive Bayley as Fafner, David Stout as Donner, David Butt Philip as Froh, Will Hartmann as Loge, Nicky Spence as Mime and Susanne Resmark as Erda.

Both Die Walküre and Götterdämmerung are available on disc from the Halle's own label, so we look forward to being able to hear Das Rheingold too.

Further information from the Hallé website.
Update: Apologies for the erroneous casting (taken from an outdated press release, all corrected now)
