Sir Mark Elder CBE to continue his Hallé Ring project with Das Rheingold on November 2715.11.16
Sir Mark Elder will conduct Wagner’s Das Rheingold in Bridgewater Hall on November 27th, in the third installment of the Hallé’s RING project, building on the hugely successful performances of Die Walküre and Götterdämmerung, both of which have been released on CD on the Hallé’s own label. The all-star cast will be led by Iain Paterson as Wotan. Elder and the Hallé have established their Wagnerian credentials over many years, including a magisterial performance of Parsifal at the 2013 Proms, of which Michael Tanner wrote in The Spectator:
‘Working with his orchestra, the Hallé, he produced an account of this miraculous score which, for a combination of passion and precision, surpassed any other that I have ever heard’.
