MetOpera: Die Walküre
Coming to Cinemas 25 July 2019
Wagner's opera from the Met's 2018-2019 season of live performances, captured in HD on the New York stage.
"The second opera in Wagner’s monumental Ring cycle, Die Walküre has long stood on its own as an evening of extraordinarily powerful theater. Part of this appeal lies in its focus on some of the Ring’s most interesting characters at decisive moments of their lives: Wotan, the leader of the gods; his wife, Fricka; his twin offspring, Siegmund and Sieglinde; and, above all, Wotan’s warrior daughter Brünnhilde. These characters and others follow their destinies to some of Wagner’s most remarkable music." (MetOpera)

Spectacular and Engrossing!!
The whole absorbing five and a half hours (including two meal breaks) !! One of the great movie/opera/music experiences of a lifetime... I have sometimes found opera heavy going before, but not this time. Who said it was boring??!
Polished performances by a world class cast, and a technically brilliant stage setting. A ride with the Valkyries like you have never been on before....
