Why See Arizona Opera - Das Rheingold?
Starring Richard Paul Fink as Alberich!
Arizona Opera presents Wagner's fiery opera in a special 20th anniversary revival of its hugely acclaimed production, helmed and conducted by Joseph Rescigno, of the Florentine Opera Company of Milwaukee. Prepare yourself for the dense world of warring Norse gods, monsters and mythology in this rich tapestry of legend, scored by one of opera's most famous and bombastic composers. the role of the dwarf Alberich will be sung by the Grammy-award winning dramatic baritone, Richard Paul Fink, with Mark Delavan singing Wotan and Daveda Karanas as Fricka.
Embittered by his failed attempt to seduce the three Rhine Maidens, the sly dwarf Alberich steals the precious river gold, forging a ring of power and enslaving his fellow dwarves in the Underworld. Meanwhile, Woton, King of the Gods is embroiled in a complicated battle with the giants Fasolt and Fafner who demand a rich payoff for building Valhalla, the magnificent new home of the immortals. When Woton hears of Alberich's ring of power, he seeks to steal it and pay his debt. But at a heavy price, for the ring is fatally cursed and ruins the lives of all those who come into contact with it...
