If I could choose director, conductor and singers for the 2013 Ring at Bayreuth, I'd probably go for these:
Conductor: Christian Thielemann
Stage director: Stefan Herheim
Sieglinde: Eva-Maria Westbroek
Brünnhilde: Nina Stemme
Wotan: René Pape
Alberich: Andrew Shore
Mime: Gerhard Siegel
It is highly unlikely that Daniel Barenboim is interested in returning to Bayreuth to do the Ring for four years. Otherwise it would have been great to have him back.
No one would like to see Waltraud Meier back in Bayreuth more than I, but is it likely? Will she still sing Sieglinde in 2013? Is her Brünnhilde ready for Bayreuth? Will Bayreuth let her just do the Walküre Brünnhilde?
I took the best from the current Tankred Dorst Ring and added a couple of newcomers.
Or is Thielemann too conservative for Herheim?
Who would you have chosen for your Ring Dream Team?
