Wagner’s noisy goddesses of death and carnage ride their thunderclouds through the night sky, assembling on their mountaintop for a laugh with each other before bearing the corpses of the mightiest dead warriors up to Valhalla to join the heavenly army. RING audiences hear this well-known music at the start of Act 3 of “Die Walküre.”
