Wagner‘s world theatre as clearly as a chamber piece. This miracle is made possible by Wagner singers of Bayreuth format. And conductor Roman Brogli Sacher builds up dramatic tension with his prestigious Philharmonic orchestra, phrasing combines precision with Wagner force. An exemplary musical and dramatic interpretation (Die Welt).
An entertaining, amusing, thrilling, shocking, silly, overwhelming, non-dusted, sublime epic. Musically, the Lübeck staging is a real feast for the ears. (Hamburger Abendblatt)
The Lübeck Ring has rounded up to a first class event - in every respect (Opernwelt)
Now is it sad or just nice that in the far north, in the small art-deco theatre of Lübeck one of the most exciting productions of Wagner takes place? Who does not want to be fobbed off with mediocrity should not miss to see and hear this event in the beautiful Hanseatic city (crescendo)
Director Anthony Pilavachi and his dramaturge Katharina Wagner serve to Lübeck in the stage-audience pictures of Momme Röhrbein and the costumes by Angelika Rieck a veritable explosion of new ideas (der neue merker)
Conductor Roman Brogli-Sacher succeeds with the Lubeck Philharmonic, a strong ensemble of singers and the equally ironic and smart direction by Anthony Pilavachi, to beat the State Operas of the world (Das Orchester)
