Live from leeds Town Hall.

Presented by Adam Tomlinson.

Opera North reaches the second part of its complete performance of Wagner's epic Ring Cycle with a spectacular production of "Die Walküre".

Wotan is king of the gods, law-maker and father of nine warrior daughters (Valkyries) with the goddess of the Earth, Erda. He tries to break the curse of the Ring of power by fathering a pure-of-heart hero by a mortal woman. But when the lives of Wotan's mortal offspring are threatened, his plans to protect them are thwarted and his favourite daughter defies his will. Though Wotan still loves her dearly, he is forced to punish her severely.

Opera North's music director Richard Farnes conducts a superb ensemble cast and the orchestra of Opera North in a concert performance at Leeds Town Hall.
