Los Angeles is no stranger to epics, with Hollywood churning out massive fantasy tales like the film adaptation of the
classic Lord of the Rings series. But in April 2009, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion will host one of the grandest epics to
ever grace the opera stage: The second installment of Richard Wagners Ring Cycle, Die Walkure.
Wotans power comes from his spear, inscribed with the treaties hes made with various forces over the course of history.
He cant break his treatiesand one of them forbids him from taking the villainous dwarf Alberichs ring outright. But if Wotan
were to father a mortal, that hero could inadvertently seek out and capture the ring for him. The trick to all this? Bending
a mortals will without them realizing it.
Brace yourself for a truly dramatic opera, filled with battles, gods and swooping valkyries. This chapter of the infamous
Ring Cycle introduces Siegmund, who doesnt realize his father is the king of gods, or that hes merely a pawn in his fathers
game. Die Walkure Los Angeles tickets are sure to sell quickly, so make sure
you get your opera tickets today.
