Richard Wagner (1813-1883): "Das Rheingold" (The Rhine Gold), directed and conducted by Herbert von Karajan in a studio production - The spectacular start of a filmed Karajan "Ring" doomed to remain a fragment. With Thomas Stewart (Wotan), Brigitte Fassbaender (Fricka), Peter Schreier (Loge), Zoltán Kelemen (Alberich), Jeannine Altmeyer (Freia). World of the gods - world of the earthly elements: Herbert von Karajan has succeeded in forcefully underscoring the contrast between the world of the gods and the earthly realm. The 'Rhinegold' already bears within it a foreboding of the 'Götterdämmerung'. In the Prelude, man - the hero - does not yet appear; what checks the power of the gods are the earthly elements: fire, water and earth.
