Longborough Festival Opera 2000. Siegfried. Jenny Miller as Brunnhilde.

And the lucky pair? This sappy Brunnhilde actually looks as if she awakes : Alan Privett's direction of Jenny Miller works a treat, indeed nearly too well (Siegfried all but loses his virginity onstage.) Matthew Elton-Thomas's Siegfried looks like a Saskatchewan logger, but he's a valuable find, who can certainly pull out the stops, even though his vibrato too often takes him under the note. Miller packs a punch too, and all voices hold their own against the orchestra : in Wagner, quite something.
