Die Walküre, Wiesbaden, Germany

What a supremely beautiful opera house in Wiesbaden.  It is small (probably around 1,000 seats) with a great quality of sound. This opera is the second in the Ring Cycle, albeit was Wagner's third in order of conception.  He had worked backwards from planning an opera about Siegfried's death and in doing so he needed another opera to tell of his conception.
