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 will present this musical chamber play with a first-class ensemble of singers experienced in Bayreuth, consisting of Eva-Maria Westbroek, Simon O’Neill and John Tomlinson. The evening will kick off with Wagner’s gossamer Siegfried Idyll.
