Wagner Die Walküre: first act


Valery Gergiev is one of the greatest Wagner conductors of our time. At the heart of this spectacular opening concert is the thrilling first act of Die Walküre: steamy music that is seldom heard in the concert hall. This act takes the form of a mini-opera lasting more than an hour, with only three singers– and what singers: three leading international operatic soloists.
