Though the start was delayed nearly 40 minutes due to the malfunction of a sensor in one of the planks of "the machine", it was a magnificent performance. I absolutely loved the way Wotan first appeared, rising up behind the platform in shadow, it was very powerful. Seeing it close up you could see all the emotions of Wotan on Bryn's face. It made the 5 1/2 hours fly by! I hope to see it again on our local PBS station, but I doubt it. Absolutely, totally wonderful!!!

Oh yes, I agree!!!!! What an amazing performance Bryn gave us, and every one of the principles did too! I'm going to get a ticket for the encore!

Hi,

I too saw Die Walkure in the movie theater yesterday. Bryn was magnificent as were the other singers. The last scene....Wotan's farewell to his beloved daughter, Brunhilde...is one of my favorites in opera. The music is so beautiful and Bryn sang the Farewell aria so beautifully!

I always love to see the backstage action between Acts and the interviews. I always enjoy Bryn's interviews so very much!!

A wonderful experience. I also hope to see the Encore on June 1. Smile
