Culture enthusiasts can take a deep breath: after the Corona-related compulsory break, friends of the famous Wagner tetralogy can look forward to numerous performances of the Ring cycle in the years to come. It will start at the Semper Opera in Dresden where two cycles will be performed at the beginning of 2021. The Deutsche Oper in Berlin has published to perform in total three cycles (two in November 2021 and another one in January 2022). But a special highlight is planned at Leipzig Opera House in 2022: the performance of all Wagner operas in the chronological order of their original premieres. So many occasions for top-class musical group tours!
