With Zubin Mehta in musical direction, the Fura has shown that today Wagner's tetralogy can be understood, first as suicidal degradation of nature, a technical man's hands, as have a place where destructive spiral of war, genocide and the irrational exploitation of natural resources

The proposal of the Fura retrieves a symbolist vision of characters who, strongly characterized by their ancestral elements remain in the middle of the stage wrapped in their light dresses and scenery. All this in a slow and continuous rotation of tones, highlights and shadows to evoke deeper ecology and forgotten of our existence.
