Die Walküre (The Valkyrie)
Premiered in 1870, The Valkyrie remains the most popular section of The Ring of the Nibelung. The opera revolves around the saga of the Wälsungen and recounts the incestuous passion of the siblings Siegmund and Sieglinde – and its terrible consequences.
Graeme Jenkins, who has been treating us to powerful Wagnerian readings, is the conductor. Opera North’s semi-staged production is based on a democratic approach to opera. Peter Mumford adopts a vision that favors the psychological intimacy of characters by making a unique use of cinematic language.
The cast includes established Wagnerian voices alongside promising young singers.
