    The Rhinegold Tickets

    Wagner’s powerful and epic opera, based on German and Norse legend, is performed by the English National Opera.

    Wagner’s epic Ring Cycle opera

    The English National Opera continues their quest to bring Wagner’s incredible Ring Cycle to London in full, as The Rhinegold opens at their London Coliseum home in 2023.

    Inspired by Norse and Germanic legends, The Rhinegold opens with three maidens, who protect treasure of immeasurable value at the bottom of the Rhine river. When the prophesied forging of a ring from the treasure triggers a battle between giants, dwarfs, nymphs and gods, the balance between the heavens and earth is dramatically disrupted.

    Forming part of German composer Wagner’s Ring Cycle, The Rhinegold opera follows the ENO’s staging of The Valkyrie. It comes to the Coliseum as part of their five year project to show the entirety of Wagner’s magnum opus to London audiences.

    The opera is directed by Olivier Award winner Richard Jones (ENO: The Trojans), with ENO Music Director Martyn Brabbins conducting Wagner’s turbulent and rousing score.

    The Rhinegold London cast includes John Relyea as Wotan, Frederick Ballentine as Loge, Madeleine Shaw as Fricka, Christine Rice as Erda, Leigh Melrose as Alberich and James Cresswell as Fafner.

    Experience the start of an epic saga, led by Wagner’s powerful music, with The Rhinegold tickets at the London Coliseum.
