PR The Complete Cycle of Wagner's Der Ring Des Nibelungen on Blu-ray Oct 30

Kultur International



The production of Wagner's Ring at the Bayreuth Festival is an event that takes place every six years. Bayreuth recordings of the complete cycle are rare; this is the second filmed version. The Kupfer/Barenboim Ring was performed over a five-year period and recorded at the conclusion in June & July 1991 and 1992 when the 'Bayreuth Workshop' had raised 'the quality of the performance to an almost unsurpassable level' (Der Tagesspiegel).

For Immediate Release: Kultur International Films

New York, NY (October 2, 2012) - Kultur is pleased to announce the Blu-ray release of Richard Wagner's Der Ring Des Nibelungen, filmed at the Bayreuth Festspielhaus. This historic Ring Cycle, under the musical direction of Daniel Barenboim, will be available on October 30, for a suggested retail price of $99.99.

In going back to the original high definition video master tapes and using cutting-edge HD encoding technology, Kultur was able to maximize the video quality of this new presentation of this historic Ring. This allowed Kultur to exploit the Blu-ray standard to its fullest and include three audio streams, LPCM, Dolby 5.1 and DTS 5.1.
