CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
From the shifting opening chords representing the depths of the Rhine, the musical and dramatic foundations are laid for this great saga of gods, dwarves, giants and mortals. The plaintive cry of the Rhinemaidens, Wotan's journey down to Nibelheim, Alberich's curse and the entry of the gods to Valhalla across the rainbow bridge are just the best-known of the many musical highlights in this epic work.
