Synopsis

Wagner’s Ring cycle is one of the greatest

works of all opera. Keith Warner’s production

is conducted by Antonio Pappano, Music

Director of The Royal Opera, and this

final revival is cast with an outstanding

international array of Wagnerian specialist

singers. 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 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.
