Meet the formidable characters of Die Walküre London
Richard Wagner, composer of Die Walküre London, was inspired by Norse mythology for this dramatic opera, which makes up part of his legendary Ring cycle (properly called 'Der Ring des Nibelungen'). The second instalment in the cycle, Die Walküre London is preceded by Das Rheingold and followed by Siegfried and Gotterdammerung - it does, however, stand alone as a production and has become the best loved of the cycle. Telling the story of incestuous lovers Sieglinde and Siegmund, the opera features famous characters like Wotan, the most powerful of the Norse gods, and his daughter Brünnhilde, who disobeys her father's orders in an attempt to rescue the lovers. Brünnhilde is a Valkyrie (Walküre), a mythological figure who wields power over the life and death of soldiers in battle and is one of the most complex and challenging operatic roles. With its themes of love, familial duty, betrayal and resignation of power, Die Walküre London is a complex and emotionally charged production of a highly significant opera. Whether you are familiar with Wagner or looking for an introduction to his operas, tickets for Die Walküre London are the perfect way to experience this legendary composer's often challenging work.
Enjoy an epic performance of Die Walküre London
Written in the mid-nineteenth century, the opera received its premiere in Munich in June 1870. After being performed in Vienna and New York, Die Walküre London made its UK debut at Her Majesty's Theatre in 1882. It has since been performed many times at UK venues, including the Royal Opera House, to which it returned as part of the Autumn 2018 season.
