preliminary evening of the stage festival play „The Ring of the Nibelung“ by Richard Wagner
The new Saarbrücken „Ring“ with the premiere of the „Rhinegold“ on 28 March 2020 is being forged by the Hungarian directors and stage designers Alexandra Szemerédy and Magdolna Parditka. They do not have an easy stand in their home country, which makes them exciting contemplators of the Wagnerian world theatre, where greed meets omnipotence. A storm of peaks and images, sound magic and „highlighting all four corners“: In Saarbrücken they are finally forging a „Ring“ again.
The directing team Alexandra Szemerédy and Magdolna Parditka have been working closely together since their joint musical studies at the Béla Bartók Conservatory in Budapest. Since 2006 they have been developing unconventional stage concepts, directing and also equipping their productions themselves. In 2013 they were a nominated for the German Theatre Award „Der Faust“.
