Notes & Reviews:
This production of 'Die Walkure' is based on the new complete edition of the works of Richard Wagner. Performed at the Het Muziektheater Amsterdam it blends the lyrical, mythical and philosophical qualities of Wagner's work into a profound unity. Pierre Audi's stage direction is inspired and amazing sets by George Tsypin and wonderful costumes by Oscar-winning Eiko Ishioka complement singing and playing of great intensity from the cast under the energetic baton of Harmut Haenchen, creating a vigorous, almost intimate performance that will leave and indelible impression.
Die Walküre is the second part of Richard Wagner's gargantuan tetralogy, Der Ring des Nibelungen, concerning the irreconcilable struggle between Power and Love.
