Outside Germany, the name Weimar tends to evoke mixed feelings and pictures of German history of the last hundred years. Within Germany, Weimar means a town in the state of Thuringia arguably saturated with the"Deutsche Kultur" of the"Weimarer Klassik", the legendary Bauhaus, and finally the life and work of Franz Liszt and his son in law Richard Wagner. In Weimar Richard Wagner began composing the first part of his RING-cycle,"Das Rheingold". In 2008 the Nationaltheater Weimar started a new production of this unique tetralogy. The conductor is Carl St.Clair, a former student of Leonard Bernstein. With Michael Schulz' fine and highly intelligent staging this new"Ring" production becomes an outstanding document of contemporary opera theatre.

"Weimar National Theatre opens a promising 'Ring' cycle with Wagner's original ur-scene." Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

"The sharpness of tone and brilliance of tempo achieved by Carl St.Clair ... and his ability to conjure exhilarating and, as required, finely structured chamber sounds from a Staatskapelle that has been precisely yet flexibly rehearsed in terms of tone and articulation ... are indicative of great musical intelligence and artistic energy." Suddeutsche Zeitung

"Michael Schulz has staged a Siegfried in which careful attention to detail and grandscale gestures are perfectly complemented by an abundance of fascinating ideas." Opernglas

"Carl St.Clair is adept at handling both the apocalyptic mood of the music and the translucent shimmering of the forest. A brilliant achievement." Frankfurter Rundschau
