Die Walküre

Part of Classical Season 2018/19

As a deadly storm rages through the forest, two desperate people find shelter.

But higher powers watch and judge, and Siegmund and Sieglinde’s forbidden love will have consequences on a cosmic scale.

A brother finds a sister, a father betrays his son and a goddess discovers her own humanity: the second part of Wagner’s Ring Cycle contains some of the most overwhelmingly emotional music in all opera.

This concert performance is an ideal entry-point into Wagner's epic world.

Leading Wagnerian Stuart Skelton heads a stellar cast.
