Wagner’s Ring cycle’s four operas journey from the beginning of a world to its destruction, with gods, heroes and monsters. 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 Antonio Pappano, Music Director of The Royal Opera, with an outstanding international array of Wagnerian specialist singers.
Approximate running time: 4 hours 50 minutes, including two intervals sung in German with English surtitles.
