NINA STEMME RETURNS
Following her triumphant and award-winning performance with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra in 2016, Nina Stemme returns to Hobart for another night of Wagnerian splendour. Appearing with her is fellow Swede John Lundgren, acclaimed for his Wagner interpretations at the Bayreuth Festival, Royal Swedish Opera and Royal Opera, Covent Garden. Marko Letonja, conductor of the 2016 concert, is the third star in the evening’s firmament.
This all-Wagner gala delivers emotion-filled and epic scenes from Der Ring des Nibelungen, including Wotan’s Farewell (Die Walküre) and Brünnhilde’s Immolation Scene (Götterdämmerung), as well as the Ring’s most stirring orchestral episodes, such as 'The Ride of the Valkyries' and Siegfried’s Funeral Music. The concert also includes highlights from The Flying Dutchman.
