After the monumental critical successes of, and standing ovations for, last year’s Das Rheingold and Die Walküre Saffron Opera Group continues its concert Ring Cycle.

Siegfried tells the action-packed adventure of a brave hero who conquers both gods and monsters to find true love. Wagner expert Michael Thorne leads a cast of international soloists, with the BBC 2015 Chorister of the Year in the role of the Woodbird and a superb orchestra of invited musicians.
