Join the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Torsten Kerl’s Siegfried for the third part of Wagner’s magnificent Ring Cycle.
‘Simply outstanding’ was how The Guardian described the start of Principal Conductor Vladimir Jurowski’s four-year journey through Wagner’s colossal Ring Cycle.
Now, together with a cast that includes some of the finest living Wagnerians, he reaches the third, and sunniest, part of the saga.
Deep in the forest, the orphaned Siegfried has grown to manhood without ever knowing fear. A dragon’s gold, a sleeping goddess, and the shattered fragments of his father’s sword will all help shape his destiny, and set him on a path that leads to love, glory, and – perhaps – a new world.
Part fairytale, part cosmic myth, it’s never less than gripping.
