Fantastic opportunity to see this opera. Domingo was as great as always, alongside a wonderful cast. The kooky-modern design that I did not find effective in "Das Rheingold" worked tremendously well here. And I had a very excellent seat via Goldstar!

Description

“You really must beg, borrow, steal, or preferably buy a ticket to see Plácido Domingo as Siegmund,” exhorts The London Times. And who better to match his artistry than soprano Anja Kampe – when paired with Plácido Domingo at Washington National Opera, the Washington Post declared them “the definitive Sieglinde and Siegmund of this century’s first decade.” This compelling love story between the doomed hero and his soulmate features some of Wagner’s most memorable music. Highlights include Siegmund’s heroic “Spring Song” (“Winterstürme”), the love duet (“Du bist der Lenz”), the rousing “Ride of the Valkyries”, Wotan’s heart-breaking “Farewell” to his beloved daughter (“Leb wohl”), and the “Magic Fire Music” finale. James Conlon conducts a world-celebrated cast, including Linda Watson (Brünnhilde), Michelle DeYoung (Fricka), Vitalij Kowaljow (Wotan), and Eric Halfvarson (Hunding).
