Enschede completes its ‘Ring’

The Nationale Reisopera is staging Götterdämmerung in Enschede at the Wilmink Theatre, designed by Ector Hoogstad Architecten. This fantastic production of the final instalment of Wagner’s four part masterpiece The Ring of the Nibelung is once again designed and directed by British director Antony McDonald and led by conductor Ed Spanjaard. The building once again proves itself as a warm and intimate theatre with sublime acoustics, which a critic of Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf even called ideal in his review of Das Rheingold, the first part of the cycle. Harry Peeters, the dutch bass-baritone who sang the role of Wotan not only in Enschede but all over the world, remarked that the Wilmink Theatre is “also from a singer’s perspective one of the very best in Europe”. It’s a shame that the Reisopera, due to budget cuts, will not be able to stage the integral Ring performances it had planned for 2013, the year that marks Wagner’s 200th birthday. However, the resilience with which the company seems to recover is admirable: next season’s plans are ambitious, nevertheless, featuring among others Tristan and Isolde, another great Wagner masterpiece. Without any doubt the Reisopera will continue to play this magnificent stage with enduring intensity.
