Die Walküre

To listen in partnership with France Musique

By 28 December 2020

From the beginning of the prelude, a storm rumbles, followed by an emotional tempest that continues to rage until Wotan bids a heart‑rending farewell to his daughter Brünnhilde. Although in Die Walküre passion is omnipresent, stronger than hatred, jealousy and divine authority, love is always ultimately smothered. In a flow of images as poetic as they are subversive, pitting Sigmund and Sieglinde against the malevolent Hunding and Fricka against her husband Wotan, Wagner portrays characters of rare psychological depth: beings who, lost in their torments and the impossibility of reaching their aims, await one who will embody a better future.
