This weekend, Alan Gilbert returns to Stockholm’s Royal Swedish Opera to conduct six performances of Die Walküre marking his first staged production as Music Director of the company (Nov 20–Jan 15). The lead roles will be sung by sopranos Ingela Brimberg, Iréne Theorin and Cornelia Beskow; mezzo-soprano Katarina Dalayman; and bass-baritone Greer Grimsley.
During the pandemic, Gilbert led streamed concerts from the Royal Swedish Opera’s ornate foyer, and in September he conducted a performance of Brahms’s German Requiem at Stockholm’s Gustaf Vasa Church on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. This month’s Wagner performances, however, represent Gilbert’s first return to the RSO pit in two years.
