Opera Australia Announces 2023 Dates For THE RING CYCLE in Brisbane

Opera Australia is bringing a new production of the Ring Cycle to Brisbane in 2023, exclusive to the Queensland Performing Arts Centre.

Come on an exhilarating adventure with men and maidens, gods and giants, dragons and dwarves. As greed and violence threaten to destroy the heavens and earth, a glimmer of hope rises from an unexpected source.

This is Wagner's Ring Cycle - the pinnacle of opera - a 15-hour epic performed over four nights.

Enjoy a week in sunny Queensland and see a spectacular new production by visionary Chinese director Chen Shi-Zheng.

In 2023, he'll explore Wagner's legendary tale through a futuristic lens. His global vision imagines a parallel universe where many cultures walk together. Towering, moving digital panels create an immersive virtual world. Astonishing costumes and props imagine an unknown future.

French conductor Philippe Auguin has conducted the Ring Cycle more than a dozen times. He leads a cast of international stars and some of Australia's most accomplished performers to bring you the memorable music of the Ring Cycle.

Performances will be at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre, 1-23 December 2023.
