About this event

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Irene Theorin and Matthew Rose will no longer be able to perform in this concert. We are pleased to announce Rachel Nicholls and Derek Welton will take their places in Icons Rediscovered: Wagner's Grand Festival.

Richard Wagner didn’t just write operas: he created worlds. Heroes struggle, gods rise and fall, and whole universes crash in ruins, all swept along by some of the most intoxicating music ever composed. But you haven’t heard Wagner until you’ve heard him performed live, and in this all-Wagner spectacular, inspired by Wagner’s own eight-concert festival at the Royal Albert Hall in 1877, Vasily Petrenko and three of the greatest living Wagnerian singers surrender to that passion all night long. From the moonlit magic of Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg through the Ride of the Valkyries to the apocalyptic final scene of Götterdammerung – where a woman’s heart redeems the world – they’ll prove, once again, the single most important fact about this most overwhelming of composers. Forget the myths, forget the horned helmets, and forget yourself: it’s all about love.   

Kindly supported by RPO President, Aline Foriel-Destezet.
