Lyric was weeks away from opening Götterdämmerung and three full Ring cycles when the global health crisis forced us to cancel a new production nearly a decade in the making. The sets were built, the costumes ready, the stage effects waiting to dazzle—and our hardworking artists and technical team could not have been more excited about bringing this production to an audience of Ring lovers coming to Chicago from around the world.
As we all look towards a time when the Ring can return to Lyric, we are sharing a wide collection of behind-the-scenes glimpses into this monumental work. Here, you'll find original content that you would have enjoyed in our program book, features and videos related to each individual Ring opera, extended music clips, press coverage, and more.
We are, now and always, deeply grateful to you for making Lyric a part of your life, and hope you enjoy this celebration of Wagner's glorious Ring.
