Wagner’s opera Die Walküre is an epic drama about the love between the hero Siegmund and Sieglinde, who is kept prisoner by the brutal Hunding.
With the Danish National Symphony Orchestra’s concert performance of the first act of the opera, you can experience three of our time’s leading Wagnerian singers in close concord under the baton of Fabio Luisi, who is also conducting music by the great Danish Late Romantic composer Rued Langgaard for the first time, in the stunning Symphony no. 4 with the title Leaf Fall. The soprano soloist of the concert, Norwegian Lise Davidsen, is among the world’s leading young singers of title roles on the biggest stages – from Covent Garden in London to the Zürich Opera. This year sees the release of Lise Davidsen’s debut album on the record label Decca, including Strauss’ Vier letzte Lieder and arias by Wagner. “A historic evening” wrote the newspaper Information in 2018 when Lise appeared with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra for the first time.
The concert is also held on the 17th of January 2020 at 7.30 pm. Read more here
