Recorded live at the Bayreuth Festival in 2008, this production is the third part of Wagners epic Ring Cycle. Christian Thielemann, one of the most sought-after conductors in the world, takes the baton with the Bayreuth Festival Chorus and Orchestra.
"Thielemann's conducting holds all in glorious Wagner...tremendous singing." (The Stage)
