Description
Die Walküre is the second part of Wagner's gargantuan tetralogy on the irreconcilable struggle between power and love, and this Dutch production more than meets the perennial challenge of mounting it. Pierre Audi's stage direction, in which the orchestra is placed on a spectacular ring-shaped stage, forges a profound unity between the opera's lyrical, mythical, and philosophical qualities and is complemented by George Tsypin's astonishing sets and costumes by Oscar-winner Eiko Ishioka. Impassioned singing and intensely dramatic orchestral playing create a memorable performance that is vigorous yet intimate.

"At last we have a contemporary treatment of Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen that doesn't insult audiences…. Nadine Secunde's Sieglinde gets better as Walküre progresses; by the time of 'O hehrstes Wunder!' in Act III she is in excellent form. Likewise, Jeannine Altmeyer's Brünnhilde … [whose] big scene with Wotan is superb. John Keyes … copes well with the demanding role of Siegmund, and visually he is totally convincing. This is the finest batch of Valkyries I've ever heard…. The 5.1 surround sound is full and rich with fine balance between orchestra and singers, [and the] photography is superb."—Classical CD Review
