Die Walküre is the second opera from Wagner's monumental Der Ring des Nibelungen cycle. Let yourself be carried away by this impressive, four-hour drama.
Brünnhilde and the Valkyrie
A compelling drama enacted by relatable characters, thrilling music and fiery spectacle, Die Walküre forms the ‘human’ heart of Wagner’s mythical four-part cycle, in which the gods reveal their human desires. The doomed romance between Wotan’s bastards Sieglinde and Siegmund is sealed and Wotan’s Valkyrie daughter Brünnhilde is punished for attempting to aid the lovers. Stripped of her divine status and immortality, Brünhilde sleeps in a circle of fire to await a hero’s kiss.
