Ring Cycle: Das Rheingold

Wednesday, May 1

Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center

Tonight, the “Prologue” of Wagner’s masterpiece The Ring of the Nibelung sets the mighty saga in motion and prepares you for what is to come: the conflict between love and power, and, ultimately, redemption through love. You’ll be plunged into the depths of the Rhine and hear the seductive siren song of the Rhine maidens; shudder at the curse placed on the possessor of all-power-giving ring of gold; fear for the folly of the gods as they traverse the rainbow bridge to enter their Valhalla palace — not knowing the doom that awaits them. With English supertitles.

Ring Cycle: Die Walküre

Thursday, May 2

Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center

With Die Walküre, Wagner leaves the realm of the gods and traces the story of the king of the gods Wotan’s mortal children and the warrior-maid Brünnhilde. The most well-loved opera of the tetralogy, it encompasses some of its most beautiful music: impassioned expressions of love, Wotan’s farewell to his beloved child Brünnhilde, the Magic Fire Music, and, of course, The Ride of the Valkyries, the rousing battle cry sung by eight Valkyrie sisters (memorably on the soundtrack of Apocalypse Now). With English supertitles.
