We will be showing Wagner’s Die Walküre live from the Royal Opera House on Sunday 28th October at 5.00pm
Richard Wagner’s epic Der Ring Des Nibelungen is always a special event in the operatic calendar: once experienced, never forgotten.
The full cycle’s four operas journey from the beginning of a world to its destruction, with gods, heroes and monsters. This epic myth portrays every type of human emotion in music and ideas of extraordinary power.
Die Walküre (The Valkyrie) is the second opera in the cycle, and features several of the Ring’s musical highlights – the sparkling Magic Fire Music and the electrifying Ride of the Valkyries. But among the musical fireworks and Norse mythology, at the centre of this opera are the unforgettable characters and the complex entanglements between them, including twins Siegmund and Sieglinde, and Wotan and his Valkyrie daughter, Brünnhilde.
Keith Warner’s production is conducted by Music Director of The Royal Opera, Antonio Pappano and cast with an outstanding international array of Wagnerian specialist singers.
Stuart Skelton (Siegmund), Emily Magee (Sieglinde), John Lundgren (Wotan), Nina Stemme (Brünnhilde) and Sarah Connolly (Fricka).
Doors open 30 minutes before the performance commences. Please arrive in plenty of time to register and, if you wish, order interval drinks.
