Greed, power struggles, the rule of law, doomed love, and the adventures of opera’s favorite dysfunctional family make the story of Wagner’s Ring as contemporary today as the day it was written. From the opening sounds of the River Rhine’s rippling waters and frolicking Rheinmaidens through the majestic “Entry of the Gods into Valhalla” across an iridescent rainbow bridge, you’ll be swept away by Wagner’s magnificent music.
This compelling love story between the doomed hero Siegmund and his soul mate Sieglinde features some of Wagner’s most memorable music. Highlights include Siegmund’s heroic “Spring Song” (“Wintersturme”), the love duet (“Du bist der Lenz”), the rousing “Ride of the Valkyries,” Wotan’s heart-breaking “Farewell” to his beloved daughter Brunnhilde (“Leb wohl”), and the “Magic Fire Music” finale.
The most magical installment of the Ring features the young Siegfried slaying a dragon with a supernatural sword, claiming the ring, and discovering love with the valiant warrior maiden, Brunnhilde.
The Ring’s final chapter celebrates the human spirit with unforgettable music that soars to the heights of human heroism. Wagner takes you on an incredible journey, from the opening Prologue drenched in doom to Siegfried’s Funderal March to the moving and dramatic climax of the Immolation Scene as Valhalla goes up in flames.
