Mark Elder / Hallé Orchestra: concert version of Die Walküre 15 & 16 July 2011

Manchester International Festival presents a new collaboration with the Hallé and The Bridgewater Hall; Wagner's Die Walküre supported by a specially commissioned dramatic prologue 'The Madness of An Extraordinary Plan: A Guide to Wagner's Ring Cycle'.

Sir Mark Elder and the Hallé return to Wagner's Ring Cycle with a concert version of Die Walküre. This follows their 2009 presentation of Götterdämmerung, which won the 2010 Gramophone Opera Award. This most enduring of operas will be performed at The Bridgewater Hall, which has arguably the UK's finest orchestral acoustic.
