'Das Rheingold', recorded live on stage at New York's Metropolitan Opera House in 2010 and now brought to the big screen. Conceived by Wagner as a prologue to the 'Ring Cycle', the opera sets forth the dramatic issues that play out in the three subsequent operas. Gold from the depths of the Rhine River is stolen by the dwarf Alberich, who uses it to forge a ring that will give him unlimited power. The theft sets in motion a course of events that will eventually alter the order of the universe. With Bryn Terfel as Wotan. The conductor is James Levine. (Runs 168 minutes, no interval.)
