Simon Rattle conducts Wagner

It is almost a miniature opera: the first act of Richard Wagner’s Walküre, in which Siegmund, Sieglinde and Hunding encounter each other in tense and exciting scenes. Simon Rattle presented this musical chamber play in December 2016 with a first-class ensemble of singers experienced in Bayreuth, consisting of Eva-Maria Westbroek, Simon O’Neill and John Tomlinson. The evening kicks off with Wagner’s gossamer Siegfried Idyll.
