The second opera in Richard Wagner’s mighty The Ring
cycle, Die Walkure
remains among the most popular and frequently performed of his works. It is a masterful epic, with themes and motifs that combine and interplay to create some of the finest woven musical threads ever.
From its gripping opening, in which the hero finds himself weaponless in the house of his enemy; to its heartrending finale, when a father bids farewell to his favourite daughter, generations of listeners have swooned to this story and its majestic, fantastical music.
This Vocal Score of this Opera, with lyrics in German and English, features a piano reduction of the orchestral part and is ideal for study, rehearsal, and concert performances.
