The Valkyrie, the second part of Richard Wagner's tetralogy The Ring of the Nibelung, in the monumental production of Robert Lepage, will be broadcast live to cinemas from The Metropolitan Opera on March 30, 2019. The "Praha" Cinema in Warsaw invites you to broadcast at 4.40 p.m.
The second opera in Wagner’s monumental Ring cycle 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.
In what is expected to be a Wagnerian event for the ages, soprano Christine Goerke plays Brünnhilde, Wotan’s willful warrior daughter, who loses her immortality in opera’s most famous act of filial defiance. Tenor Stuart Skelton and soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek play the incestuous twins Siegmund and Sieglinde. Greer Grimsley sings Wotan. Philippe Jordan conducts.
