Part of the Wagner ring cycle, Der Ring des Nibelungen. In Das Rheingold the power crazy dwarf Alberich plots to steal the Rhinemaidens gold, which bestows omnipotence on its owner. Meanwhile Wotan and Loge, two powerful gods, plan to steal the gold as a ransom for the goddess Freia who has been kidnapped by giants annoyed at not being paid for building Valhalla. Sung in German with English supertitles. Sponsored by the Bank of Scotland, Das Rheingold marks the beginning of Scottish Opera's four-year undertaking of Wagner's Ring Cycle.
