Epic Wagner

Amphithéâtre Fernand-Lindsay

With his grandiose tetralogy, The Ring of the Nibelung—the famous “Ring” cycle—, Wagner revolutionized opera’s musical language and theatrical scope. The cycle stands as an achievement of gigantic proportions rooted in the foundational mythology of the Nordic peoples, heirs to Ancient Greece, yet modern in its allegory of society, power and love. From the first act of Die Walküre, the second of the four operas, Yannick Nézet-Séguin unleashes the living force with the help of three of today’s greatest Wagnerian singers. An epic evening, after the resounding concert versions of Lohengrin in 2013 and Parsifal in 2017.
