Curtain calls

For Götterdämmerung. Shanghai, 19 September 2010.

From left to right:

Astrid Weber as Gutrune (also Sieglinde) [for some reason just a bit inclined to sing sharp when forte on g″ – a tendency quite particular to this note], Gunther (also Donner), Brünnhilde, Markus Stenz, conductor, Siegfried, Hagen, Dalia Schachter as Waltraute (also Fricka, first Norn).

The same Siegfried (Lance Ryan) and Gutrune in this video of the same production.

Gurzenich orchestra in background:

Below: Greer Grimsley and cast at end of Die Walküre, 17 September 2010. Lance Ryan here as Siegmund and Astrid Weber as Sieglinde (in pants) plus Fricka, the Walkyries (Br. obscured) and Rydl as Hunding.
