Recorded on October of 2018, Maida Hundeling’s debut at the Royal Opera House is now available for purchase as a Blu-Ray via Naxos.
Antonio Pappano conducts an outstanding cast including Nina Stemme, John Lundgren, Sarah Connolly, Emily Magee, Stuart Skelton, Ain Anger, Maida Hundeling, Alwyn Mellor, Lise Davidsen, Kai Rüütel, Claudia Huckle, Catherine Carby, Monika-Evelin Liiv and Emma Carrington in Keith Warner’s ‘outstanding staging’ (Evening Standard) of Wagner’s Die Walküre.
Die Walküre is the second opera in Richard Wagner’s four-opera-cycle Der Ring des Nibelungen. It is the most performed work in the cycle, loved and admired for its nuanced and intelligent exploration of complex family entanglements through music of astonishing emotive power. This includes the glorious music for the incestuous lovers Siegmund and Sieglinde, and Wotan’s passionate farewell to his beloved daughter Brünnhilde.
