Die Wermland Walküre

Die adventure of the magic ring continue in Karlstad, die neue Bayreuth... As with Rheingold, Die Walküre is of high standard. The singing of Siegmund and Sieglinde was almost too good (to big?)for the small stage, but Classicalify enjoyed it very much. But why put an ugly wig on the handsome Siegmund (Jan Kyhle)? In Walküre, Wotan is sung by Urban Malmberg... sorry to say, but he didn't had the same power as Zetterström. And Classicalify among others is very curious why on earth his left eye is now patched? Wasn't it the right one in Rheingold?

How about all those screaming walkures? Well, the lot of 8 came flying down from the air, big wings and all... Of course Classicalify was impressed! Sister Brünnhilde (Ann Louice Lögdlund) did a good presentation of the warrior-maid and Classicalify is anxious to see how she develops in the coming two parts.

All in all, this performance is rated 4 stars by Classicalify.
