In Detail

Siegmund in Richard Wagner’s Walküre is a signature role for Jonas Kaufmann. The world-renowned tenor is passionate, radiant and combative in his portrayal of the tragic hero at the centre of a love triangle that confronts us with the emotional extremes of revenge, incest and lover’s bliss.

To celebrate the end of the year, chief conductor Kirill Petrenko, an acclaimed interpreter of Wagner, conducts the first act of the opera at the Berliner Philharmoniker’s New Year’s Eve Concert. The programme opens with excerpts from 'Tannhäuser' that encapsulate the grandeur of Wagner’s great work.
