Live from the Royal Opera House: Die Walküre
The Revue Cinema bring the best of the Royal Opera House to Roncesvalles! Join us on November 25 for our first immersive opera broacast of the season — Antonio Pappano conducts an international cast in the second opera of Richard Wagner’s epic Der Ring des Nibelungen.


DETAILS

Running time: The performance lasts five hours, including two intervals.

ABOUT THE OPERA

Die Walküre is the second work and ‘first evening’ of Richard Wagner’s four-opera cycle Der Ring des Nibelungen, following Das Rheingold. It has become the most performed opera of the cycle, loved and admired for its nuanced and intelligent exploration of complex family entanglements, expressed through music of astonishing power – perhaps nowhere more so than in the glorious music for the incestuous lovers Siegmund and Sieglinde.

Wotan’s voyage of self-discovery and ultimate resignation are at the heart of Keith Warner’s production, created for The Royal Opera in 2005. Wotan’s great Act II monologue is set in the abandoned former home of the gods, seen in Das Rheingold, whose evident disorder and damage present a striking representation of Wotan’s own inner decline and the gods’ incipient twilight. Recurring objects and visual motifs reflect the use of musical themes within Wagner’s score, which shows the composer at his most radical and most lyrical.

  1. I was in the cinema last night and saw other operas advertised.I cannot find references on your site. Perhaps it too far in the future.
    Can you point me to the right page? or any available info on this?

    The Sun Nov 25th is 4 hrs long. Can you tell me how many breaks?
    I’m asking for my sister who is with a walker and has health/mobility issues and loves opera.

    Thank you.
    Judy

    1. Hello, the entire break down of the screening has been added to our Die Walküre webpage, which includes 2 intervals. As for other operas please check back in the future, we usually have the schedule set at the beginning of each month.

      All the best,
      Revue Cinema
