Saffron Opera Group

After the monumental critical successes of, and standing ovations for, last year’s Das Rheingold and Die Walküre Saffron Opera Group continues its concert Ring Cycle. (“ I have to reach back to memories of Karajan’s days for a Die Walküre that was overall as well sung as this” – Paul Dawson-Bowling, Wagner News). Siegfried tells the action-packed adventure of a brave hero who conquers both gods and monsters to find true love. Wagner expert Michael Thorne leads a cast of international soloists, with the BBC 2015 Chorister of the Year in the role of the Woodbird and a superb orchestra of invited musicians.

Sung in German with English surtitles.

Running time: Approximately 5 hours 50 Minutes including 2 intervals.

Act 1 running time: Approximately 90 minutes followed by a 30 minute interval.
Act 2 running time: Approximately 80 minutes followed by a 60 minute interval.
Act 3 running time: Approximately 90 minutes.
