Rheingold rework: Erda
|Das Rheingold - Erda|
Here is one of the images I revisited for the new Ring Project with somewhat surprising results. Erda. I always envisioned her growing out of the ground before our very eyes to deliver her prophecy. Almost like time-lapse photography. And just as quickly she recedes back into the recesses of the earth.
In the original it was so dark that her face was obscured to a great extent, but now she emerges eerily out of the mist. Just as she should.
