Internationally-renowned Wagnerian tenor Simon O’Neill returns home to join the crème de la crème of New Zealand and international singers for this concert performance of Wagner’s astounding The Valkyrie (Die Walkure).

Very rarely are New Zealand audiences treated to Wagner’s epic music dramas, here the timeless mountains bear witness to a famous act of compassion and betrayal. Full of love, infidelity, abandonment and incest, The Valkyrie features some of the composer’s most memorable music, including the awe-inspiring Ride of the Valkyries.

Supported by an astounding hoard of Valkyries, this extraordinary musical event will be cherished and remembered for years to come.

Duration: 5hrs 40 mins including two intervals - 20mins / 1hr

Pre-paid meal hampers:
During the course of the concert there are two intervals, one 20 minute break and also a one hour dinner break. For dinner we have two delicious set menu hampers available including a vegetarian option. Orders are pre-paid at $35 per person or $60 for two people.
