The personalities in this sweeping story kneaded together from various pieces of Germanic mythology create a forcefield of incredible concentration that seems to bring the theatre the the boil with its dramatic glow. It is not at all easy to find the right cast of characters for this work, but this production will leave audiences wanting for nothing. The two lovers - who are, it later turns out, actually siblings - are played by Eva-Maria Westbroek and Stuart Skelton. Christine Goerke takes the stage in the title role, a Valkyrie who rejects the commands of her father, while the chief god Wotan, who favours her, is brought to life by Greer Grimsley. The fearsome figure of Hunding, the cruel hunter, is taken on by Günther Groissböck.
