Opera Cheat Sheet: Die Walküre

Listen to our light-hearted overview of Richard Wagner’s Die Walküre, which is this week’s San Francisco Opera broadcast airing on Classical 91.7 Saturday at noon.

In this week’s Opera Cheat Sheet, Classical 91.7’s program director St.John Flynn and opera expert Eric Skelly discuss Wagner’s Die Walküre, the second installment of Wagner’s Ring Cycle, in which the story begun in Das Rheingold now shifts from the gods to the human world as Siegmund and Sieglinde meet and fall in love.  You can hear the San Francisco Opera production of Die Walküre Saturday at noon on Classical 91.7 and online at classical917.org.
