THE DREAM RING CYCLE

DIE WALKÜRE - 1940

Friedrich Schorr - Wotan, Kirsten Flagstad - Brünnhilde, Lauritz Melchoir - Siegmund, Lotte Lehmann - Sieglinde, Karin Branzell - Fricka, Emanuel List - Hunding, others

Vocal Ensemble and Orchestra of the Metropolitan Opera under Erich Leinsdorf

The greatest cast ever assembled in a dream performance of Walküre that represents, at its zenith, the Golden Age of Wagner at the Metropolitan Opera. Melchior's golden-throated heroism and poetry give one a Siegmund that, like Lehmann's passionate Sieglinde, is absolutely incomparable. And to hear Schorr's noble, warm and wise Wotan with Flagstad's superlative Brünnhilde together makes for one of the supreme experiences in Wagner performances. Music critics, from Opera on Record to Opera News, say, “Cast your own Ring” and Schorr, Melchior and Flagstad head their list. This Walküre eclipses all others. Includes broadcast commentary and resulting ovations, articles about the performance, the singers, photos, biographies and full details on Source and Recording.
