Wagner: Die Walküre
Add this event to your Google Calendar.
In June 2019, eleven years after first being performed in its entirety at Müpa Budapest, the Ring tetralogy is returning in a revival that preserves Hartmut Schörghofer's acclaimed directorial concept, but which has been updated in several respects, with new choreographies, stage action and projected films for the audience to enjoy. This will be the second occasion for the audience to see this new and yet still familiar Ring.
As an exciting change, the role of Siegmund, after having been sung by Christopher Ventris in 2017 and Stuart Skelton in 2019, will this year be taken over by Zoltán Nyári, while the part of Sieglinde, previously sung by Anja Kampe in 2017 and Camilla Nylund in 2019, will now go to the versatile German soprano Simone Schneider. And there will also be old acquaintances, with Iréne Theorin as Brünnhilde, Atala Schöck as Fricka and, of course, the conductor of the Budapest Wagner Days, Ádám Fischer, who will once again create the sweep and power of Die Walküre with incomparable intensity.
A music drama in three acts (Updated version of the renowned production, in German, with surtitles projected in Hungarian and German).
Presented by: Müpa Budapest
