Theater Basel is set to preview its upcoming production of “Der Ring des Nibelungen” on Oct. 31, 2022.

The organization announced that artistic director Benedikt von Peter and his team will present ideas for the first Ring cycle to grace the company’s stage in over 40 years. Von Peter will direct the cycle alongside co-director Caterina Cianfarini.

The production team will also feature Monika Gintersdorfer, Knut Klaassen, Ted Gaier, Regine Dura, Hans-Werner Kroesinger, Matthew Herbert and Imogen Knight.

Theater Basel opened its new season in September with a production of “Der Freischütz” and “Salome.” It is also presenting such works as “Resist,” “Lady in the Dark,” and “Rigoletto” in upcoming weeks and months.
