The Ring Cycle opens with this magnificent prelude.

In the space of a single, majestic, two-and-a-half hour musical span, Wagner immerses you in a mysterious, primordial world of scheming gods, misshapen dwarfs, alluring maidens and fearsome monsters.

The struggle for power and wealth in Das Rheingold irrevocably alters the order of the universe and determines the course of the entire saga.

Spurned by the three beautiful Rhinemaidens, the Nibelung dwarf Alberich steals their gold and forges it into a ring that gives unlimited power to its wearer.

When Wotan, the lord of the gods, steals the ring, Alberich curses it and all who wear it.
