Why See Metropolitan Opera - Die Walkure?

Classical & Opera

Take flight

Prepare yourself for The Met's revival of Wagner's spectacular Ring Cycle, last seen in 2013. A popular favorite with all audiences, the sprawling saga invites you to enter a dense world of warring Gods, monsters and mythology, scored by one of opera's most famous and bombastic composers. Magnificent in scope and featuring some of the most unforgettable music in the repertoire, don't miss your chance to see it performed by the renowned company, in one of the most glorious and sumptuous productions on the planet.

Extraordinary, bloody and dramatic, the Ring Cycle continues with Die Walkure, concerning the fortunes of those on earth as the Gods look on. Featuring the triumphant and instantly recognizable 'Ride of The Valkeries', this epic instalment will leave you nothing short of breathless. With Christine Goerke at the reigns as Brunnhilde and Stuart Skelton and Eva - Maria Westbroek as Siegmund and Sieglinde.

Das Rheingold


As Wontan desperately seeks a way out of his curse, his children run into trouble. Siegmund, his half mortal and innocent son finds himself battling his nemesis Hunding, after falling for his wife Sieglinde who is, unbeknownst to either of them, his twin sister. Whilst the fight continues on earth, the Gods look down. Wotan beseeches Brunnhilde, his Valkyerie daughter, a reaper of heroes, to protect his son. But his wife, Fricka, the protector of Wedlock is angered by the adultery and incest he has committed and bids Brunnhilde to make sure he dies. Torn between compassion and duty, Brunnhilde awaits a terrible fate...
