Richard Wagner's Das Rheingold Sung in German with projected English translation April 23, 2014 - 7:30 p.m. | April 26, 2014 - 7:30 p.m. This stunning production takes us to a mythical world of dwarfs and gods, magical helmets, and a ring that endows its wearer with ultimate power. Deep beneath the surface of the Rhine, Alberich, a wily and treacherous dwarf, lusts after the Rhinemaidens' treasure: a cache of gold. Whoever owns the gold and forges it into a ring will have power over the world. Unable to catch one of the beautiful maidens, Alberich steals the gold.
