Victoria's opera season begins with DAS RHEINGOLD, which has been staged only once before by a Canadian opera company. Here is a world of giants and river nymphs, of dwarves that toil beneath the earth and gods that rule from the mountaintop hall of Valhalla. The first opera in Wagner's monumental Ring Cycle, DAS RHEINGOLD  sets in motion the epic conflicts that will ultimately destroy the gods.

Acclaimed Canadian baritone John Fanning returns to POV in the role of Wotan, ruler of the gods. Joni Henson is Fricka with Benjamin Butterfield as Mime. The production is directed byWim Trompert with conductor Timothy Vernon and the Victoria Symphony
