The real Wagner in Dresden

A former Kapellmeister at the court of Dresden, Wagner, who created Rienzi, Der Fliegende Holländer and Tannhäuser in the Saxon capital, invites himself to the Dresdner Musikfestspiele in an original version. At the instigation of its director Jan Vogler and Kent Nagano, the artistic director of the project, the festival wants to rediscover Wagner’s sound by using historical instruments and the linguistic style of the time of the creation. As a result of this musicological research, the Ring will be performed from 2023 onwards by the Dresden Festival Orchestra and the Concerto Köln. The first performance of “Das Rheingold” in the Dresden Kulturpalast on 14 June 2023 marks the official launch of the project.
