Wagner

Act one of the «Valkyrie» is one of the most intoxicating love scenes in opera, especially when, as tonight, sung by such outstanding performers as Jonas Kaufmann, Martina Serafin and Falk Struckmann.

In Wagner’s opera, Wotan’s two illegitimate children, Siegmund and Sieglinde, fall in love and their ecstatic union produces the hero Siegfried. In the first half, Jaap van Zweden and the Gstaad Festival Orchestra perform other works by Wagner.
