A magnificently minimalist Ring from Fulham Opera

Fulham Opera’s production is an act of distillation which rebels against everything we’re usually told about the Ring: and it allows the vibrant power of Wagner’s story, and the sheer beauty of his music for the human voice, to hit us harder and deeper than any production I have seen before. It is simply staged, brilliantly sung, and terrifyingly, spine-shiveringly powerful. Be warned: it may change your perception of Wagner forever.

Inclusive and unpretentious, with a fluently written and fascinating programme (a genuine asset for audience members new and old), the Fulham Ring could bring a whole new audience to Wagner – and to opera.  Woodward, in his superb musical act of reduction, has brought us a Ring of eyewatering clarity, raw beauty and visceral power. Cancel everything, and go.
