Wagner
Die Walküre

Erich Leinsdorf conducts some of the greatest Wagnerian singers of the post-WWII era in this stunning performance of Die Walküre, the highly emotional—and ever-popular—second installment of the Ring cycle. Otto Edelmann is Wotan, lord of the gods, who sees his carefully laid plans go tragically wrong. The incomparable Birgit Nilsson sings Brünnhilde, his favorite warrior daughter. Jon Vickers, at the top of his game, is Siegmund, the hero Wotan is putting all his hopes on before giving in to the demands of his wife, Fricka (Irene Dalis). Gladys Kuchta sings Sieglinde, Siegmund’s sister and bride, and the 24-year-old Martina Arroyo makes a cameo appearance as Ortlinde, one of the Valkyries.
