Wagner: Das Rheingold (Mono Version) - Stewart, Reynolds, Esser, Neidlinger, Bode, Zednik; Stein. Bayreuth, 1972


Listen to a Sample:



  • Thomas Stewart's smooth-talking Wotan commands the stage from his entrance until the final bars of the opera.
  • Anna Reynolds brings imposing grandeur to the role of Fricka.
  • Karl Ridderbusch and Hans Sotin are a formidable pair of giants.


  • This version is in mono and the sound is a bit muffled. There is an alternate version in stereo with better sound, although it contains intermittent clicking.
