The Ride of the Valkyries
Excerpt from final scene of Siegfried
“Kaufmann and Westbroek project the right kind of sexual and emotional intensity to carry the drama in the very bare setting that they're in, a tension matched elsewhere only by Waltraud Meier's masterclass of a Waltraute...Elsewhere there is solid singing from the 'baddie' basses...and much evidently enjoyed hard work from Deborah Voigt's Brünnhilde”
