This set presents all of Wagner’s mature operas from seven leading European opera houses recorded during the last decade, featuring many of the most acclaimed Wagner singers of our age, in productions which exult in the force of Ezra Pound’s dictum, ‘Great art is news that stays news’. The directors Harry Kupfer, Nikolaus Lehnhoff, David McVicar and others heed Wagner’s own persuasive plea, ‘Children, make it new’, in stagings employing sophisticated modern technology within grand designs which face up to the breadth of Wagner’s dramatic genius and the social and political implications of his work for us today.

Special Wagner anniversary DVD collection presented in luxury packaging.

Released at a highly competitive price.

Running time: 40 hours approx.
