Opera North's complete performance of Wagner's epic Ring Cycle continues with the spectacular Die Walküre, in a concert performance live from Leeds Town Hall. Richard Farnes, Opera North's music director, conducts the chorus and orchestra alongside a experienced cast of soloists: Erik Nelson Werner, Jennifer Johnston and Katherine Broderick are among the singers. The complex plot, which involves the king of the gods trying to break the curse of the Ring of power, is split into three chunks – the second and third of these broadcasts are at 6.30pm and 9.15pm.
