Program notes

The fabulous Yannick Nézet-Séguin, one of the preeminent international conductors of our day, leads a lineup of Wagnerian experts alongside the impeccable Rotterdam Symphony Orchestra in a concert version of Wagner's formidable Die Walküre (The Valkyrie), the second of four operas in the epic Ring cycle! Following a widely lauded Das Rheingold, Yannick and the RPhO move on to the next chapter of the saga in which Brünnhilde the Valkyrie (Tamara Wilson) defies her father, the god Wotan (Brian Mulligan), to protect the love between Siegmund (Stanislas de Barbeyrac) and Sieglinde (Elza van den Heever), helping to bring the hero Siegfried into the world—but at a heavy cost to her own immortality… The Prelude to Act III may contain the most famous theme in all of Wagner's music, and the entire extraordinary score with all its grand drama comes to life in the hands (and award-winning voices) of an all-star cast.
