"The Loop of the Nibelung is an audio-visual exploration of the mythic Bayreuth Festspielhaus and the Wagner legacy. Three singers and musicians from the Bayreuth Festival Orchestra take part in the choreographed chain reaction, turning the Festspielhaus into both an instrument and the stage set for a fragmented version of The Ring."
