Runnicles: San Francisco Ring Cycles 2018

For San Francisco Opera, there is a special connection between Donald Runnicles and contemporary productions of the pinnacle of all opera, Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen(The Ring of the Nibelung). Twenty-six years ago, Runnicles made his debut here conducting two Ring cycles to rave reviews, and was subsequently engaged as the company’s music director. He served in that capacity for 17 years, leading some 60 productions, including the Ring cycles of 1999 and 2011.

According to an announcement today from SFO General Director Matthew Shilvock, Runnicles — general music director of Deutsche Oper Berlin — will conduct the three Ring cycles scheduled for June 2018.
