Lise Davidsen sang Act I of Die Walküre at the Bayerische Staatsoper today with Jonas Kaufmann, Georg Zeppenfeld, and Asher Fisch . I broke down crying it was so wonderful. How can I pretend to review this?
We were stomping our feet at home along with the distanced live audience. Orchestra, conductor and soloists were all outstanding. Lise is the fiercest Sieglinde I've ever seen.
I originally posted this on May 13 this year. I have just finished listening to it for the third time. It's absolutely wonderful, with two of my great operatic loves singing. There is a Die Walküre series at Bayreuth this summer with Lise but not Jonas. It's not being streamed. But how could I possibly love it as much as this? Wagner has never gone so deep into my heart.
