Das Rheingold triumphs at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées

On Saturday evening April 22, Yannick conducted l’Or du Rhin in a concert version with the Rotterdams Philharmonisch Orkest, which he happily finds regularly as honorary conductor. This work constitutes the Prologue of the Ring or Tetralogy by Richard Wagner, one of the most complete and difficult works in the repertoire, which he wishes to continue in the more or less near future. A skewer of singers of great renown contributed to the extraordinary success if we are to believe the Parisian critics. Two more concerts of Das Rheingols will happen respectively in Dortmund on Thursday evening and in Baden Baden on Saturday evening.
