Edinburgh International Festival unveils 70th anniversary programme.
British bass-baritone Sir Bryn Terfel will star in a concert at the Usher Hall.


Sunday 6 August 2017 5.00pm
Usher Hall
Tickets £20 - £60* Booking opens for everyone Saturday 25 March at 10am.
Usher Hall
Royal Scottish National Orchestra
Sir Andrew Davis Conductor

Cast includes:
Christine Goerke Brünnhilde
Amber Wagner Sieglinde
Karen Cargill Fricka
Simon O'Neill Siegmund
Bryn Terfel Wotan
Matthew Rose Hunding

Following last year’s Das Rheingold from Mariinsky Opera, the epic Die Walküre takes us deeper into Wagner’s vast mythological world in the second part of the International Festival’s four-year Ring cycle.

Revered British bass baritone Bryn Terfel as the desperate Wotan, celebrated US soprano Christine Goerke as the Valkyrie Brünnhilde and New Zealand tenor Simon O'Neill as Siegmund lead an exceptional international cast, with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra conducted by outstanding Wagnerian Sir Andrew Davis.

An all-powerful ring in the clutches of a jealous dragon. A forbidden love in defiance of the king of the gods. A warrior princess enchanted within a wall of magic fire.

Die Walküre tells a profoundly human story of mankind’s emotions, frailties and dramas, evoked in some of Wagner’s most powerful, memorable music, including the mighty ‘Ride of the Valkyries’.

Songs by Schubert, Schumann, Brahms and Meirion Williams

Superstar of the opera and concert stage, Bryn Terfel has a voice that can fill the world’s greatest opera houses, and a musical personality just as warm and charismatic. From Wagner to folk song, the great Welsh bass baritone mines drama from all he sings, blending vast power and subtlety in his unforgettably rich, expressive voice.

He is joined by Edinburgh-born pianist Malcolm Martineau, one of his closest musical collaborators – and pianist of choice for countless world-renowned singers – in a recital that combines tender Lieder by Schubert, the compelling passions of songs by high Romantics Schumann and Brahms, and the touching evocations of Terfel’s compatriot Meirion Williams.

Rory‏ @rorytenor
Delightful concert tonight @Bryn_Terfel - loved the Schubert and Brahms but the Welsh folk songs really sparkled. What a voice!
