Wagner Anniversary ConcertSir Andrew Davis conducts a concert commemorating the exact 200th anniversary of Richard Wagner's birth with music from Die Meistersinger, Tristan und Isolde and Die Walkre with soloists Giselle Allen, Susan Bullock and James Rutherford. The Valkyries is one of Wagner's finest artistic achievements - and the prelude to Act III, The Ride of the Valkyries, has become rooted in popular culture since the 1979 film Apocalypse Now, where an American air regiment bellows out Wagner's powerful piece on helicopter-mounted loudspeakers during an assault on a Vietnamese village. This Philharmonia Orchestra concert kicks off Wagner 200 - a wide-ranging, London-based festival celebrating the bicentenary of the German composer's birth. Wagner 200 continues throughout the year with further concerts, opera screenings, public masterclasses, symposia, a curated film season, an exhibition and much more - at leading venues including the Southbank Centre, Royal Opera House, English National Opera, the Barbican, Royal Albert Hall and Kings Place.
