Do gentlemen prefer blondes?

Blondeness in opera is more than just a hair colour. Blonde defines the role being played, establishes identity, is a strategy or a cliché, is affirmation and provocation rolled into one and sometimes symbolises nothing more than the kind of gender relations that we thought were gone for good. With THE MAKING OF BLOND, the theatre and media makers of Chez Company question being blond in the opera and cross this with the reality of their lives.

Alexander Meier-Dörzenbach and Jörg Königsdorf

The Valkyrie: An introduction

The whole ring is about the powerlessness of love and the lovelessness of power. Wotan wants to rule with laws to achieve power and love. What he does to his children, however, is marked by suffering and brutality. Dramaturgs Alexander Meier-Dörzenbach and Jörg Königsdorf give an overview of the central themes and motifs in THE RING OF THE NIBELUNG and especially in THE VALKYRIE as well as of Richard Wagner's creative process.
