Review from David L.

After Das Rheingold, I was just not sure what to expect from Die Walkure. Well, I need not have worried. It was just wonderful. While I wish that Placido Domingo still had the voice he had 20 years ago, I was more that satisfied with his...continued

This was a totally awesome experience. A definite thumbs up. Placido Domingo and cast, music, the special effects, and stage set. The seats were fantastic!!

Review from Randall

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).
