With parts 1 and 2 already huge critical and audience successes, the HK Phil launches part 3 of The Ring of the Nibelung, Wagner’s supreme operatic masterpiece. Maestro van Zweden again leads immense orchestral forces and world-class singers to mount this enduring legend—the first orchestra in the region to bring the experience to you. Continue your journey into the world of gods, dwarves, warrior maidens, and the superhero Siegfried, who forges his father Siegmund’s shattered sword, kills a fierce dragon, and, with the help of a forest bird, rushes off to the Magic Fire-encircled rock where the incomparable heroine Brünnhilde sleeps. He awakens her … with a kiss, leading to a breathtaking love duet. Nothing compares to the glory of these voices and the sheer power of the orchestra. You MUST be there!
