About the Event

The popularity of Wagner's 'Walküre' can be attributed to several factors. Firstly, the opera presents two distinct storylines that captivate the audience. On one hand, there is a tragic love story between the siblings Siegmund and Sieglinde, and on the other hand, a narrative revolving around the relationship between father Wotan and his daughter Brünnhilde. This combination of dramatic arcs creates a compelling and emotionally charged experience for the viewers.

Additionally, 'Walküre' is characterized by its magnificent vocal symphony, a hallmark of Wagner's later works. The orchestral ideas, such as the use of cellos for Siegmund and violins for Sieglinde, add depth and nuance to the music. However, these intricacies are often overshadowed in staged performances, making a concert rendition all the more captivating.

Furthermore, the famous "Ride of the Valkyries" scene in 'Walküre' has become iconic and further contributes to its popularity. This exhilarating and visually stunning moment has ensured the opera's enduring appeal. As a result, 'Walküre' has emerged as the most beloved of Wagner's four 'Ring' operas since its inception, and audiences can now relish in the opportunity to witness it in all its glory at the prestigious Festspielhaus, featuring a stellar cast.
