Synopsis

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


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.


APPROXIMATE  RUNNING  TIME:  4  HOURS  50  MINUTES,  INCLUDING  TWO  INTERVALS  |  SUNG  IN  GERMAN  WITH  ENGLISH  SURTITLES
