Die Walküre 2021

Part of Wagner’s Ring Cycle 2021

Hear the emotion-drenched second part of the Ring Cycle, presented by the London Philharmonic Orchestra in their complete performance of Wagner’s epic work.

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.

Leading Wagnerian Burkhard Fritz heads a stellar cast.
