The Ring Cycle

The Next Ring at Seattle Opera

Seattle Opera has a long history of performing Wagner's Ring Cycle starting in 1975, with the most recent performances in August 2013.

Building a new production of the Ring is a significant financial commitment for any opera company and will require a substantial fundraising campaign to create and present an entire cycle. Given the costs and the planning timeline required, the decision to mount a new Ring will be between the new General Director and the Board of Directors and should not be expected before the company’s 60th anniversary in 2023.
