The choreographer Joachim Schlömer was followed by the "psychoanalyst" Christof Nel, as the second of this Stuttgart Ring’s four producers. Nel is an artist concerned to reveal Wagner’s characters, their ambivalences and their conflicts, from the inside. To this end, he has no hesitation in using what he calls "today’s materials". He wants the audience to encounter experiences they recognize. They will find no remote mountain crags, gnarled world ash trees, nor spectacular magic fires in Karl Kneidl’s set designs. But they will find the coordinates of never-ending desire in the direction and sets that are are similarly far from traditional.
