Virginia Opera: The Valkyrie

The Virginia Opera brings Wagner’s epic masterpiece to the Center for the Arts. The cornerstone of the majestic “Ring Cycle,” Die Walküre is the second part of this magnificent tetralogy, and has achieved immense popularity as an independent work. In this magnum opus based on Norse and Teutonic myths, a powerful god is torn between conflicting loyalties among his mortal and divine children in his desire to possess a magical ring that will make him omnipotent. Wagner’s brilliant score includes “Ride of the Valkyries,” one of the most famous and exhilarating pieces in the operatic literature, and the breathtaking finale leaves audiences speechless. Sung in German with English supertitles.
