Notes on the performancesOpen 
After the “prologue” of Das Rheingold we arrive at the “first day” of The Ring of the Nibelung.

Die Walküre marks the start of the saga and the fatal weaving of the plot between the world of the gods, Wotan and Valkyrie rebel Brünnhilde, and the more dramatically human world of heroes, the world of Siegmund and Sieglinde.

Unravelling the plot in this production are director Guy Cassiers, aided by some of the very latest theatrical technology, musical director Daniel Barenboim and a cast that includes the finest Wagnerian voices of today: Nina Stemme (Brünnhilde), Waltraud Meier (Sieglinde), Vitalij Kowaljow (Wotan) and Ekaterina Gubanova (Fricka). Together with Nina Stemme, Simon O’Neill (Siegmund) and John Tomlinson (Hunding) make their La Scala debuts.
