World Premiere: Court Theater, Munich, 1870. The second opera in Wagner's monumental Ring cycle, Die WalkĂĽre 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 BrĂĽnnhilde. These characters and others follow their destinies to some of Wagner's most remarkable music.
