Die Walküre

Approximate running time 5 hrs. 10 min.

The second installment of Robert Lepage’s new production of the Ring cycle, conducted by Fabio Luisi, features a stellar cast led by Bryn Terfel as Wotan, lord of the Gods, and Deborah Voigt as Brünnhilde. Jonas Kaufmann and Eva-Maria Westbroek star as the Wälsungen twins, Siegmund and Sieglinde, and Stephanie Blythe is Fricka. “The Ring is not just a story or a series of operas, it’s a cosmos,” says Lepage (La Damnation de Faust), who brings cutting-edge technology and his own visionary imagination to the world’s greatest theatrical journey.

These performances are also available as part of a complete 2011–12 Ring cycle.
