“This production quite possibly shows us the path that musical theater will be taking in the future” (Die Zeit). Indeed, the Spanish city of Valencia is setting new accents in 21st century opera not only with its spectacular, futuristic opera house, the Palau de les arts “Reina Sofía” designed by Santiago Calatrava, but also with the visually transfixing production of Wagner’s “Ring” staged there by Carlus Padrissa and his theater group la Fura dels Baus. The Barcelona-based Fura became known internationally when it designed and carried out the opening ceremonies of the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, and made its breakthrough in the classical world with its production of Berlioz’s “La damnation de Faust” at the 1999 Salzburg Festival.
