About This Performance
Swiss conductor and Music Director of the Paris Opéra Philippe Jordan leads a veritable “best of” Wagner’s massive Ring of the Nibelung, a musical milestone in Western civilization.
He enjoys the collaboration of one of the world’s greatest Wagnerians, Swedish dramatic soprano Iréne Theorin: “Her gleaming tone […] Her impassioned intensity and the nobility of her phrasing […]. A born actress, she movingly conveyed Brünnhilde’s transition from a warrior maiden mortified by the loss of her godhood to a vulnerable woman hopelessly in love.” (The New York Times)
