ROH – Die Walkure (Opera)
On Sunday 28th October, Antonio Pappano conducts an international cast in the second opera of Richard Wagner’s epic Der Ring des Nibelungen, starring Stuart Skelton, Emily Magee, John Lundgren, Nina Stemme. This final revival of Keith Warner’s production of Diel Walkure is cast with an outstanding international array of Wagnerian specialist singers. The full cycle’s four operas journey from the beginning of the world to its destruction, with gods, heroes and monsters. This epic myth portrays every type of human emotion in music as well as ideas of extraordinary power. The Ring is always a special event in the operatic calendar: once experienced, never forgotten. (The Valkyrie) features several of the Ring’s musical highlights – the sparkling Magic Fire Music and the electrifying Ride of the Valkyries.
Start time 5.00 pm (5 hr. 50 min. including two intervals).
