Synopsis by Nathan Southern

The Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia mounted this 2008 production of Richard Wagner's colossal opera Die Walküre, which benefits from some unusual elements, namely the involvement of La Fura dela Baus, which designed opulent, visually extravagant sets that blend extreme lighting, unusual props and three-dimensional computer projections. The production stars Peter Seiffert as Siegmund, Matti Salminen as Hunding and Juha Uusitalo as Wotan. Carlus Padrissa directs for the stage; The Orchestra of the Comunitat Valenciana, under the direction of Zubin Mehta, provides symphonic accompaniment.
