Summary
Die Walkure continues the action introduced in Das Rheingold. The emphasis moves from the gods to the realm of men. In fact, among the gods, only Wotan and Fricka ever appear again in the entire Ring Cycle. Walkure is different from Rheingold in that Wagner begins to pour into his music all the emotion of which he is capable. While Rheingold is somewhat formal and somewhat stodgy in form and music, Walkure is pure emotional bliss. Wagner has no problem with using music to manipulate his listeners in just the way he wants
