Kevin Hanek, tenor A new production concept of Wagner’s Die Walküre developed by the American heldentenor Kevin Hanek is being considered for its premiere at the 2009 FAOT Internacional music festival in Sonora, Mexico. The production draws inspiration from some of the groundbreaking Wagner productions which began to appear throughout Germany and Austria prior to the Second World War. During the zenith of the Weimar Republic in the 1920s and 30s, Germany was a hothouse of theatrical innovation and experimentation. Its artists were actively clearing away the traditional, naturalistic production values of the previous century, and ushering in elements of the groundbreaking artistic movements that were taking place there at that time. Upon the ascendancy of the National Socialist movement to the national political scene, Adolf Hitler (a frustrated artist and passionate Wagnerite) began a systematic suppression of these artists and their work. By the end of the 1930s, many of them had been removed from their positions of influence, frequently exiled or worse, and replaced by traditionalist stage designers and directors who met with the approval of Hitler and his regime, significantly altering the course of theatrical development in Germany and the rest of the world for years to follow.

Using the famous Act 1, Scene 3 duet between Siegmund and Sieglinde as a workshop vehicle for the concept, this production seeks to attract contemporary audiences into an intimate live theatrical setting to experience Wagner’s great masterpiece—with dramatic singing that is faithful to the lyric ideal of Wagner’s music, in a visceral and visually compelling theatrical concept synergizing cutting-edge video and lighting elements, and featuring Spanish-language surtitles from Metropolitan Opera tenor and diction coach Nico Castel’s critically acclaimed translation—stripping away the accumulated political connections in the process and acquainting new audiences with the brilliant music and enduring artistic truths of Wagner’s timeless mythology. Hanek will sing the role of Siegmund, with soprano Kathy Geary appearing as Sieglinde.
