RING for children brings Richard Wagner’s massive cycle, composed of four operas, to the Musiikkitalo as a two-hour experience for the whole family.
The show that was seen at the Bayreuth Festival in Germany in 2018 comes to Helsinki as a visually stunning interpretation in Finnish that is sure to thrill both children and adults.

The story of RING features humans and mythological creatures, gods and dwarves, animals and water-nymphs. The story revolves around the mystical Ring of the Nibelung, which is wanted by everyone as it grants the power to rule the world. But can the world and nature be ruled?

Based on the concept created by the artistic director of the Bayreuth Festival Katharina Wagner and Markus Latsch, the work is produced in Finland by Teatro Productions. The cast includes both young up-and-coming and experienced Wagner singers, and they will be accompanied by the Helsinki Chamber Orchestra. The performances will be given under the patronage of bass Matti Salminen.
