The Wagnerian Caption Competition No 1

Written By The Wagnerian on Wednesday, 8 February 2012 | 12:35:00 am

Time for a bit of fun, and with that in mind I present the first Wagnerian Caption Competition. Tell us, in an amusing a manner as possible please, what is being said in the scene from the Chéreau Walkure below and you will find yourself the winner of a brand spanking new MP3 copy of   the Moralt live Walkure from 1949. Alas, I am still slightly mean and it was a copy bought "on the cheap" over at emusic and thus comes as 3 complete MP3 files - not separate tracks I am afraid and no booklet. But look, its free and the winner gets a special mention. To hear a little bit click play below.

Best caption Twittered to us - or emailed if you really don't have a twitter account - wins and collected electronically. Closing date: 15/02/12

Siegmund and  Brunnhilde
