Sung in German with English surtitles.
As a deadly storm rages through the forest, two desperate people find shelter. But higher powers watch and judge, and Siegmund and Sieglinde’s forbidden love will have consequences on a cosmic scale. A brother finds a sister, a father betrays his son and a goddess discovers her own humanity: the second part of Wagner’s Ring Cycle contains some of the most overwhelmingly emotional music in all opera. It’s an ideal entry-point into Wagner’s epic world. Leading Wagnerian Stuart Skelton heads a stellar cast.
Please note this performance lasts 5 hours 15 minutes including one 30-minute interval and one 60-minute interval.
View of the choir from seats in row B of the front stalls may be obstructed.
Seats in the choir will enjoy an immersive experience behind the orchestra but will be unable to see the surtitles and projections.
Make this an afternoon to remember. Join us for a champagne Taittinger interval reception with the opportunity to meet the soloists and musicians after the concert. Find out more.
Generously supported by members of the Orchestra’s Ring Cycle Syndicate.
