Wagner - Die Walkure / John Keyes, Nadine Secunde, Jeannine Altmeyer, John Brocheler, Kurt Rydl, Reinhild Runkel, Amsterdam Opera - Hartmut Haenchen, (1999) [3 DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

'Die Walkure' is the second part of Richard Wagner's gargantuan tetralogy, 'Der Ring des Nibelungen,' concerning the irreconcilable struggle between power and love. The originality of this production from Het Muziektheater Amsterdam more than meets the perennial challenge of staging 'The Ring.' Pierre Audi's stage direction, in which the orchestra is placed on the ring-shaped stage, succeeds in forging a profound unity between the lyrical, mythical and philosophical qualities of Wagner's work, complemented by George Tsypin's astonishing sets and wonderful costumes by Oscar-winning Eiko Ishioka.
