The Rhine Maidens
seem to be having a pillow fight at a pajama party, which gets the evening off to a shaky visual start.
The plaintive cry of the Rhine Maidens
lamenting their missing gold.
If you're going to queue through the night to see it, next March should be a better bet than last December, but don't necessarily expect the see the Rhine maidens
get their kit off again (blue pubic wigs anyone?) Oh, and the performance starts at 4pm.
At the Chicago Lyric Opera, she choreographed a twenty-three-minute "bungee ballet" for the Rhine maidens
in its 1992 Das Rheingold and had acrobatic spear-wielding valkyries bouncing across the stage on a row of trampolines in its 1993 Die Walkure.
Das Rheingold ( The Rhinegold, 1869) In the bottom of the Rhine is a hoard of gold guarded by the Rhine maidens
. Alberich, the dwarf, forswears love to gain this hoard, which confers boundless power upon its possessor.
