Photos of RingZurich – Light Festival at Zurich Opera House
Illuminations on The Opera House Zurich for Richard Wagner’s Rheingold
#Ring Zurich at the Opera House Zurich
As you might have read in our “What’s On Guide” to events in Zurich (or seen on our Instagram) , the façade of the Opera House in Zurich (@operzuerich ) was recently illuminated for three evenings from Thursday 28th May to Saturday 30th May for the #Ring Zurich event.
The illuminations all began at 9pm until 11pm with a performance every 30mins. Each performance lasted just over 10 minutes and was accompanied by music from Richard Wagner’s opera.
Richard Wagner and The Ring of Nibelung
Richard Wagner lived in Zurich and much of “The Ring of the Nibelung ” was created whilst he was in Zürich! In fact Zürich was also the place where the “Ring” had its premier at the Hotel Baur Au Lac over a series of 4 consecutive evenings.
The light show was put on by @projektilart and this FREE event took place on Sechselaeutenplatz in Zurich right in front of the Opera House. You may have read about other Projektil illuminations like the one at St Jakobs Church in Zurich or the LILU light festival. You can see a short video of the LILU light festival here.
If you missed the event we hope the photos in this blogpost give you an idea of what it was like.
