NOTE:  Due to the US changing to Summer Time a week later than the UK, the advertised time for this performance - 5:00pm - is wrong.  The show starts at 4:00pm. This grand spectacle goes on, just an hour earlier!  Please book tickets over our box office line - 020 3011 5523 - so we can be sure everyone is clear about the change in time.

This second opera in Wagner's Ring Cycle stars soprano Christine Goerke, tenor Stuart Skelton, and soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek.  Ring Cycle veteran Philippe Jordan conducts.  Featuring some of the most glorious music ever written - including, of course, "The Ride of the Valkyries"- Die Walküre continues Wagner's epic story of monsters, gods, and humans.

When love-struck twins Siegmund (Stuart Skelton) and Sieglinde (Eva-Maria Westbroek) find each other at last, Siegmund promises to release Sieglinde from her forced marriage by killing her husband, Hunding. The god Wotan instructs Valkyrie warrior Brünnhilde (Christine Goerke) to defend Hunding but, moved by the twins’ devotion, Brünnhilde disobeys, instead forging an alliance with Sieglinde that will have far-reaching consequences for them both.
