Die Walküre

By Richard Wagner

  • Language - Sung in German with projected English translations
  • Running Time - 4 hours, 55 minutes with 2 intermissions

Die Walküre's riveting, devastating drama involves complex relationships between brother and sister, husband and wife, father and daughter. Every character is unforgettable—valiant Siegmund and Sieglinde, headstrong Brünnhilde and mighty, tortured Wotan, determined Fricka and vengeful Hunding. Wagner's music drama burns itself in our memories, exciting us with the emotional intensity of its lyrical outbursts and its incredible power and majesty.
