Event Description:
The Live Cinema series continues at Gesa Power House Theatre with a screening of the current Royal Opera production of Wagner’s "Die Walküre," on Sunday, December 9 at 1:00 p.m.

"Die Walküre" (The Valkyrie) is the second opera in Richard Wagner’s epic "Der Ring Des Nibelungen" (The Ring Cycle). It features several of the Ring’s musical highlights – the sparkling "Magic Fire Music" and the electrifying "Ride of the Valkyries." But among the musical fireworks and Norse mythology, at the centre of this opera are the unforgettable characters and the complex entanglements between them, including twins Siegmund and Sieglinde, and Wotan and his Valkyrie daughter, Brünnhilde.

"Die Walküre" features a stellar international cast including Australian tenor Stuart Skelton (Siegmund) and John Lundgren (Wotan), who both make their Royal Opera debuts, American soprano Emily Magee (Sieglinde) and award winning Swedish soprano Nina Stemme (Brünnhilde). "Die Walküre" will be conducted by Antonio Pappano Music Director of The Royal Opera House.

The Royal Opera House cinema broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, interviews and incredibly detailed close-ups of performers.

This production of "Die Walküre" is sung in German with English surtitles. Runtime: approximately 5 hours, including an onscreen introduction and two intermissions. Beer, wine, popcorn, and snacks will be available for purchase, and may be taken into the theater. 

Reserved seating: $15 Adults, $10 Students (in advance); $18 Adults, $12 Students (at the door). Tickets are available online (www.phtww.com) or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.
