Sponsor by:

After the success of the beginning of the Tetralogy by Robert Carsen with (The Rhinegold) El Oro del Rin, the Teatro Real contines with the second stage (The Ring of Niebelungs) El Anillo del Nibelungo by Richard Wagner, with Conductor Pablo Heras-Casado and outstanding artists of Wagnerian repertory such as Stuart Skelton y Sarah Connolly. Perhaps this is the most popular title of the series, both because of the name of the opera, as well as for the music of the “Ride of the Valkyries” at the beginning of the Third Act. In this opera, the powerful ring continues to be the object of desire and source of conflict, in addition to dictating the fate of both those who desire it and those who fear it. 


First day of the Tetralogy Des Ring des Nibelungen

Music and libretto by Richard Wagner (1813-1883)
Premiere at the  Königliches hof-und Nationaltheater in Munich, 26th of June, 1870.

Premiere in the Teatro Real, 19th January, 1899.

Synopsis of The Valkyrie

After the presentation last season of Das Rheingold, prologue to the huge tetralogy by Richard Wagner, we now have the first day of The Valkyries, possible the opera which most faithfully adapts to the theoretic principles which the composer set forth in his book “Opera and Drama”.

Here, the powerful ring continues to be the object of desire and source of conflict, in addition to dictating the fate of both those who desire it and those who fear it. Not even the God Wotan is able to restrain his greed, and in his obsession to posses it, he destroys a large part of his family.  It is only one chapter of a story, which, as well known, will carry on until the destruction of the world.

The Wagnerian characters bare their emotions by means of a music which is in perfect harmony with the text.  By his tetralogy, he is able, -as almost no other can- awaken passions and polemics to the same degree.

At any rate, there is no doubt that by this means he fulfills his greatest desire to survive beyond life.
