Prom 68: Wagner Night

This listing is in the past
Royal Albert HallKensington Gore, London, Greater London, SW7 2AP, United Kingdom
On Monday 9 September 2019 at 19:30
Festival: BBC Proms

Composer-themed evenings were a distinctive and popular feature of Henry Wood’s early Proms seasons: if it was Monday, it was Wagner Night. We revive this tradition with a concert whose first half explores the enchanted forest (both beguiling and darkly supernatural) – a key symbol of the German Romantic movement. The second half presents pivotal scenes from Götterdämmerung, the climax of Wagner’s four-opera magnum opus The Ring of the Nibelung – including Siegfried’s Death and Funeral Music and the vocal tour de force of Brünnhilde’s Immolation Scene.
