Summary Watch the interview and learn more about Die Walküre is Wagner's second opera in Der Ring des Nibelungen, containing some of Wagner's most memorable pieces. Wagner's work is often called "Tetralogy", but the composer used to say it was a "scenic festival staged in a prologue and three days." It is a philosophical reflection on society, politics, and economy, inspired by ancient Germanic and Norse myths, but still of current interest. The poem of 14 hours is composed of 8000 verses and shows more than 30 characters. The first day, Die Walküre is an opera in three acts, whose premiere was held in 1870 at the The National Theatre Munich, with conductor Franz Wüllner. Among the beautiful partitions it offers, there is the famous theme of the Ride of the Valkyries. This interview takes you behind the scenes of the great Die Walküre.
