Siegmund and Sieglinde find themselves drawn together during a storm. Unbeknown to them their father is Wotan, chief of the gods, who through Siegmund hopes to retrieve a ring of ultimate power.

Following Longborough’s acclaimed Das Rheingold, Wagner’s epic tale of Der Ring des Nibelungen continues with Die Walküre (The Valkyrie), conducted by Longborough’s Music Director Anthony Negus and directed by Amy Lane.

The Longborough Ring cycle continues in 2022 with Siegfried.

A tremendous tribute to Anthony Negus, who probably knows The Ring better than any other living British conductor
