Music Director Designate Jaap van Zweden leads immense orchestral forces and world-class singers in Act I of “Die Walküre,” part of Wagner’s epic The Ring — a glorious marriage of drama and music. Burning passion seizes Siegmund and Sieglinde, two mortal children of the god Wotan, climaxing in a love duet whose emotional impact will stay with you long after the last note has faded to silence.
