DIE WALKÜRE

Die Walküre (The Valkyrie) is the second of the four operas that form the cycle Der Ring des Nibelungen (The Ring of the Nibelung), by Richard Wagner.
Wagner took his tale from the Norse mythology told in the Volsunga Saga and the Poetic Edda.
It received its premiere at the National Theatre Munich on 26 June 1870 at the insistence of King Ludwig II of Bavaria. It premiered in Wagner’s Bayreuth Festival as part of the complete cycle on 14 August 1876.
