Brünnhilde and Wotan, 2010 (Limited Edition Print) – Elizabeth Peyton

Elizabeth Peyton created a special limited edition of 30 etchings, Brünnhilde and Wotan, on the occasion of her 2010 show, Wagner, in the Arnold and Marie Schwartz Gallery at the Metropolitan Opera House. The striking portrayal depicts one of the most moving images in Die Walküre: Wotan’s kiss before putting Brünnhilde into a magical sleep.

Elizabeth Peyton is best known for her gemlike paintings of friends and historical figures. New York’s New Museum has called her “a painter of modern life,” whose “small, jewel-like portraits are intensely empathetic, intimate and even personal.”

The etchings are numbered and signed by the artist, and all proceeds from the sale of the prints will support the Arnold and Marie Schwartz Gallery.

The Metropolitan Opera thanks Elizabeth Peyton; her gallery, Gavin Brown’s enterprise; and her print publisher, Two Palms Press, for their donation of the proceeds from this sale.

Die Walküre

Die Walküre (The Valkyrie) composed between 1851-1856 is the second opera in Richard Wagner’s Ring Cycle. The four operas in the series include Das Rheingold (The Rhinegold), Die Walküre (The Valkyrie), Siegfried and Götterdämmerung (Twilight of the Gods).

This opera has long stood on its own as a masterpiece of extraordinary powerful theater. Part of its appeal lies in its focus on many of the Ring’s most interesting characters, who follow their destinies to some of Wagner’s most remarkable music.

In this three-act opera, Wotan, the ruler of the gods, has nine daughters, each born from one of nine goddesses. They are the Valkyrie, outfitted in the iconic steel helmets, spears and shields tasked with selecting brave soldiers, who have died on the battlefield and bringing them to Valhalla, the castle of the gods.

In Act 2, Brünnhilde, the heroine of the Ring Cycle, appears and sings “Ho, yo, to ho!” her famous battle cry. The prelude “Ride of the Valkyries” in Act 3 is perhaps the most famous in Wagner’s operas.

The Met’s production of Die Walküre in its 2018–19 season featured minimal otherworldly landscapes with digital imagery to achieve a modern interpretation of the composer’s masterpiece.

It was performed, as a single opera, at the National Theatre Munich on June 26,1870, and received its first performance as part of the Ring Cycle at he Bayreuth Festspielhaus on August 14,1876.

The Met’s landmark production, directed by Robert Lepage, premiered over the course of the 2010–11 and 2011–12 seasons. The DVD release of its Live in HD presentation won the 2013 Grammy Award for Best Opera Recording.
