Live from the Royal Opera House: Die Walküre

The Revue Cinema bring the best of the Royal Opera House to Roncesvalles! Join us on November 25 for our first immersive opera broacast of the season -- Antonio Pappano conducts an international cast in the second opera of Richard Wagner's epic Der Ring des Nibelungen.

About the opera

Die Walküre is the second work and ‘first evening’ of Richard Wagner’s four-opera cycle Der Ring des Nibelungen, following Das Rheingold. It has become the most performed opera of the cycle, loved and admired for its nuanced and intelligent exploration of complex family entanglements, expressed through music of astonishing power – perhaps nowhere more so than in the glorious music for the incestuous lovers Siegmund and Sieglinde.
Wotan’s voyage of self-discovery and ultimate resignation are at the heart of Keith Warner’s production, created for The Royal Opera in 2005. Wotan’s great Act II monologue is set in the abandoned former home of the gods, seen in Das Rheingold, whose evident disorder and damage present a striking representation of Wotan’s own inner decline and the gods’ incipient twilight. Recurring objects and visual motifs reflect the use of musical themes within Wagner’s score, which shows the composer at his most radical and most lyrical.

Running time: The performance lasts about 5 hours, including two intervals.
