Die Walküre 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.

Impassioned singing, and intensely dramatic playing by the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra under the energetic baton of Hartmut Haenchen create a vigorous, almost intimate performance that will leave an indelible impression.

This is a 3-DVD set!
