Description
"Wotan (Albert Dohmen) and Brünnhilde (Linda Watson) … [give] commanding performances, particularly in Act 3…. Dorst's production, and this filming of it, are at their best in the later stages of Act 3 and the result is a powerful and affecting account of one of The Ring's greatest episodes. Thielemann has been saving up his broadest tempi and most fervently shaped articulation for this conclusion…. An impressive demonstration of interpretative conviction, made even more absorbing by a staging in which Brünnhilde emerges as the dominant figure…. There's nothing obscure or understated about Thielemann's galvanising presence in the pit and seeing its effect on his singers in Act 3 makes these DVDs even more recommendable than the original CDs."—Gramophone

"John Botha [Siegmund] is an A-list heldentenor … and sings with power and commitment. A high point is Botha's scene with Brünnhilde in Act II: It's poignant, even majestic, as he declines the Valkyrie's offer of a cushy afterlife in Valhalla…. The sense of musical coherence and continuity is extraordinary. Further contributing to the success … is the high-resolution sound … coming closer than ever to reproducing the singular aural experience of the Festspielhaus. Voices and instruments register as equally significant, amplifying the meaning of, for instance, Wotan's long second-act speech…. The Making of Die Walküre is very worthwhile, especially if you've never been to Bayreuth. There are terrific shots of the famed recessed orchestra pit and other aspects of the theater."—Fanfare
