Opera Australia’s The Ring Cycle continues with Die Walküre opening in Melbourne on Wednesday night. Here’s the first look at some images.
This is the one that welcomes the famous Valkeries, who rescue the souls of heroes and take them to Valhalla to be with the gods. And it’s the first appearance of Brünnhilde, sung by English soprano Susan Bullock, who sings high Cs like she’s blowing a kiss.
If you don’t have tickets, but want to hand out with the “Ring Nuts” from all over the world, there’s the FREE Festspielhaus in the Arts Centre courtyard. There’s a bar and an entertainment program featuring Ring performers and Melbourne favourites.
