Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
Der Ring des Nibelungen is perhaps the best-known work of 19th century composer Richard Wagner, and Sir Georg Solti's ambitious 1965 recording of the legendary tetralogy is nearly as renowned. Directed by Emmy winner Humphrey Burton, The Golden Ring: The Making of Solti's "Ring" is a BBC documentary that features performance excerpts from the recording process. Birgit Nilsson and Wolfgang Windgassen are among the singers.
