Ring Cycle: Die Walküre
McCaw HallSeattle Opera Performance of Die Walküre - Cycle #3
8/21/2013 6:00 PM



Part 2 of the Ring cycle, featuring the unforgettable “Ride Of The Valkyries”, is equal parts heady romance and high-stakes family drama. Deep in the forest, love blossoms between the dashing nomad Siegmund and the unhappily married Sieglinde. Believing that this union holds the key to lifting the ring’s curse, Wotan instructs his Valkyrie daughter Brünnhilde to defend Siegmund in the ensuing duel. The adulterous pairing draws the ire of Fricka, goddess of marriage, who demands the interloper be killed. Wotan defers to Fricka, but Brünnhilde, moved by Siegmund’s overwhelming love, defies the gods and protects him. The duel ends messily, Sieglinde is spirited away to bear a son, and Wotan and Brünnhilde have a fiery father/daughter showdown on a towering cliff.

In German with English Captions.

Approximate Running Time: 4 hours and 30 minutes, with 2 intermissions
