With the return of the four part Ring Cycle  to Melbourne by Opera Australia beginning in December, this is your chance to take a peek at one of world’s longest, most complex, most controversial and most marvellous operas.

Die Walkure (The Valkyrie) might be most famous for the Valkyries’ ride, but Act one  contains some of the most memorable melodies and events in the whole of the Ring Cycle.

Act One presents Siegmund’s flight into the heartland of his enemies where he at once finds his name, the woman he loves and the cause he must die for.  Charged with suspense and mystery, Act One features two of the greatest love arias in the whole of the repertoire- Wintersturme and Du bist der Lenz.  If you don’t know the story, you will be on the edge of your seat every second.  If you do know the story, you will thrill once more to the suspense and the sweep of the music.
