No production of the Ring can conclusively answer all the questions thrown up by this theatrical cosmos. The puzzles, anomalies and contradictions will never be completely resolved or even reconciled. But Jossi Wieler痴 direction, in sets by Anna Viebrock, exercises an unprecedented power of suggestion to draw from Siegfried the glummest of all comedies, making laughter die in the throat, and presenting only one negative figure: the Wanderer, Wotan. Here, the god is a schizoid: the CEO of Walhall Inc. who has lost his power base. He should have retired long ago, but he still flaunts himself, an elegant old rocker in jeans, leather jacket and shades: impotent, but still enjoying sadistic little games, like the quiz in which Mime痴 head is the prize.
