San Francisco Opera has assembled an exceptional international cast of the world’s leading Wagnerians for the 2018 Ring cycle, beginning with an exciting trio of artists who are new to the Company. German soprano Evelyn Herlitzius (“towering vocal strength, meeting all the challenges of the score with vibrant, thrilling tone,” Opera News) makes her highly anticipated Company debut in the pivotal role of Brünnhilde who appears in three of the four operas: Die WalküreSiegfried and Götterdämmerung. She has performed Brünnhilde at the Vienna State Opera, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Munich’s Bavarian Opera House, Bayreuther Festpiele and other European opera houses. American tenor Daniel Brenna (“an exciting baritonal sound that can hold its own against the orchestra’s most withering fire,” Parterre) first bows with San Francisco Opera as Siegfried in both Siegfried and Götterdämmerung, a role for which he earned critical acclaim during the 2016 revival of Zambello’s production of the Ring at Washington National Opera. Well known for his accomplished performances in Wagner’s works, especially the Ring, German bass-baritone Falk Struckmann (“Commanding voice and musical intelligence,” New York Times) makes his Company and role debuts as Alberich in Das RheingoldSiegfried and Götterdämmerung.
