Following last year’s Das Rheingold from Mariinsky Opera, the epic Die Walküre takes us deeper into Wagner’s vast mythological world in the second part of the International Festival’s four-year Ring cycle.

Revered British bass baritone Bryn Terfel as the desperate Wotan, celebrated US soprano Christine Goerke as the Valkyrie Brünnhilde and New Zealand tenor Simon O'Neill as Siegmund lead an exceptional international cast, with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra conducted by outstanding Wagnerian Sir Andrew Davis.

An all-powerful ring in the clutches of a jealous dragon. A forbidden love in defiance of the king of the gods. A warrior princess enchanted within a wall of magic fire.

Die Walküre tells a profoundly human story of mankind’s emotions, frailties and dramas, evoked in some of Wagner’s most powerful, memorable music, including the mighty ‘Ride of the Valkyries’.
