ROH Live: Die Walkure (Live)

Opera in Three Acts

ANTONIO PAPPANO CONDUCTS AN INTERNATIONAL CAST IN THE SECOND OPERA OF RICHARD WAGNER’S EPIC DER RING DES NIBELUNGEN.

Wagner’s Ring cycle is one of the greatest works of all opera. Keith Warner’s productionis conducted by Antonio Pappano, Music Director of The Royal Opera, and thisfinal revival is cast with an outstanding international array of Wagnerian specialistsingers.

 

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. The Ring is always a special event in the operatic calendar: once experienced, never forgotten.

 

Die Walküre (The Valkyrie) is the second opera in the cycle, and features several ofthe Ring’s musical highlights – the sparkling Magic Fire Music and the electrifying Rideof the Valkyries. But among the musical fireworks and Norse mythology, at th ecentre of this opera are the unforgettable characters and the complex entanglements between them, including twins Siegmund and Sieglinde, and Wotan and his Valkyriedaughter, Brunnhilde.
