Prom 68
  Performance Date:     Seat Amount:    
Composer-themed evenings were a distinctive and popular feature of Henry Wood's early Proms seasons: if it was Monday, it was Wagner Night.

We revive this tradition with a concert whose first half explores the enchanted forest (both beguiling and darkly supernatural) - a key symbol of the German Romantic movement.

The second half presents pivotal scenes from Götterdämmerung, the climax of Wagner's four-opera magnum opus The Ring of the Nibelung - including Siegfried's Death and Funeral Music and the vocal tour de force of Brunnhilde's Immolation Scene.
