Saturday Morning Cartoons: Ride of the Valkyries

Email a Friend

For this Saturday’s cartoon, we spotlight the Ride of the Valkyries, from Richard Wagner’s Ring cycle opera, Die Walkure. This music is featured in “What’s Opera Doc,” a 1957 cartoon directed by Chuck Jones for Warner Brothers.

We play a recording conducted by James Levine, today’s guest on Operavore, coming up at 10:30am. And be sure to stay tuned for the Met Opera broadcast of Gotterdammerung, the final opera of the Ring Cycle, at 11 am following Operavore.
