In this week’s Opera Cheat Sheet, Classical 91.7’s program director St.John Flynn and opera expert Eric Skelly discuss Wagner’s Die Walküre, the second installment of the Ring, in which the story begun in Das Rheingold now shifts from the gods to the human world as Siegmund and Sieglinde meet and fall in love.  You can hear the Metropolitan Opera’s production of Die Walküre Saturday at 10AM on Classical 91.7 and online at classical917.org.
