Wagner's 'Das Rheingold' with Lorentzon, Karnéus, Persson, Lind and Gunnell from Gothenburg
Concert from the Baltic Sea Festival. Wagner's 'Das Rheingold' is the first of the four music dramas that constitute Der Ring des Nibelungen. At the bottom of the Rhine, the three Rhine maidens, Woglinde, Wellgunde, and Flosshilde, playing together. Alberich, a Nibelung dwarf, appears from a deep chasm and tries to woo them. Struck by Alberich's ugliness, the Rhine maidens mock his advances and he grows angry. He chases them and tries to catch them in his arms, but they elude him, and tease and humiliate him.
