On May 1, 2018, tickets to individual performances of Richard Wagner’s four-opera cycle, “Der Ring des Nibelungen” will be available for the San Francisco Opera’s summer revival.
The announcement comes after performances were only available as complete cycle packages.
Seats for all 12 performances in three full cycles of Wagner’s Ring will be available for purchase individually and in build-your-own cycles. Availability of tickets will vary by section, date of performance, and price with seats beginning at $100.
San Francisco Opera Marketing Director Lisa Bullard noted in a press release, “I’m pleased that after our successful 20-month Ring cycle subscription campaign, we are now able to offer all remaining tickets for each individual performance. Beginning May 1, music lovers can choose to attend one or more of the Ring operas. There are a limited number of great seats remaining for all 12 performances.”
San Francisco Opera’s Ring Cycle is set to star Evelyn Herlitzius as Brünnhilde, bass-baritone Greer Grimsley as Wotan, tenor Daniel Brenna as Siegfried, soprano Karita Mattila as Sieglinde, tenor Brandon Jovanovich in the roles of Siegmund and Froh, mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton as Fricka and Waltraute, and many others. Francesca Zambello directs her acclaimed production with Donald Runnicles conducting.
