About this Recording

WAGNER, R.: Walkure (Die) (Liceu, 2003) (NTSC)

Wagner (1813 - 1883) DIE WALKÜRE

Richard Berkeley-Steele, Eric Halfvarson, Falk Struckmann, Linda Watson, Deborah Polaski, Lioba Braun Symphony Orchestra of the Gran Teatre del Liceu / Bertrand de Billy

In the second work of Wagner’s epic cycle, Der Ring des Nibelungen, struggles of power mix with adulterous and incestuous love in an episode of dramatic vengeance.

Filmed at Barcelona’s Gran Teatre del Liceu in 2003, Harry Kupfer’s acclaimed production, first staged in Berlin, numbers among the greatest productions of modern times and is recorded in sumptuous surround sound.

"‘Last season at the Liceu the first of two parts of “Ring of the Nibelung”, “Rhinegold” and “The Valkyrie”, were performed… Any production of this epic work is an event, and there aren’t many of them. This is an excellent version, not old-fashioned or perverse, visually a mixture of realistic and abstract, but mythic and timeless and very moving. Deborah Polaski was a fine Brunnhilde, and she continues in this role. Wotan, with a pony-tail and dark glasses, was nobly performed by Falk Struckmann. In Wotan’s “Farewell” the affection between father and daughter was most expressively sung and acted.’ Barcelona Business"
