In the organizer's words:
After the reign of the gods has reached its radiant zenith at the end of the RHEINGOLD with the entry into the castle Valhalla, the signs in the WALKÜRE are stormy: the people are frozen in greed for power, distrust and possessiveness, the gods limit themselves only to supervising the observance of the old laws instead of questioning their meaning ... Conductor: Nicholas Carter [Cycle 1] / Sir Donald Runnicles; Directed by Stefan Herheim; With Michael König, Tobias Kehrer, Derek Welton, Elisabeth Teige, Annika Schlicht, Ricarda Merbeth et al. a.
After the reign of the gods reached its shining zenith at the end of RHEINGOLD with the entry into the castle Valhalla, in WALKÜRE the signs point to storm: The people are frozen in greed for power, distrust and possessiveness, the gods restrict themselves only to supervising the observance of the old laws instead of questioning their meaning. Thus, the brother and sister Siegmund and Sieglinde are left to die because there is no room for their love in this system. And the Valkyrie Brünnhilde also falls under the spell when she dares to go against the verdict of her father Wotan and protect the couple. In WALKÜRE, Wagner makes clear whose side he is on: in Siegmund and Sieglinde's great love scene, in which the natural power of love triumphs over all social dictates, but also in the development of Brünnhilde, whose actions, initially guided only by intuitive compassion, turn into conscious resistance against inhumanity and injustice.
