La Fura dels Baus mounted this 2010 production of Richard Wagner's massive "Ring" opera cycle, characterized by a combination of video technology, unusual props (including human beings) and three-dimensional computer projections. The entire opus appears in this set - Das Rheingold, Siegfried, Die Walküre and Götterdämmerung - with an enormous cast that includes Juha Uusitalo, John Daszak, Matti Salminen, Stephen Milling and Anna Larsson. The Orquestra de la Comunitat Valenciana and the Cor de la Generalitat Valenciana lent musical support, with Francesc Perales serving as chorus master and Zubin Mehta conducting; Carlus Padrissa directs for the stage; Chu Uroz designed the costumes and Roland Obeter did the stage design.
