Wagner Siegfried: Act III (96′)

Sir Mark, the Hallé and an outstanding cast of singers end the season in magnificent style with a two-night concert performance of Wagner’s mammoth opera Siegfried, the third part of the Ring cycle. Based on ancient Nordic sagas, the Ring is a timeless moral drama concerned with love, power and corruption, a vast fable that is as relevant today as ever. In Siegfried the opera’s eponymous hero forges a mighty sword, slays the dragon Fafner, goes on to possess the cursed Rung, and release the sleeping Brünnhilde from her fiery mountain-top exile. Wagner’s use of musical leitmotifs as an integral part of the story is simply enthralling, while the glorious orchestral preludes that open Acts I and II are hugely impressive in their own right.

Musically and dramatically this is a two-part event not to miss.
