When our season opened in early November 2021 with Act One of Wagner’s Die Walküre, the atmosphere was, in a word, electric. As the LPO played the final notes of the epic score, the thunder of applause that followed was one of the most uplifting sounds I have experienced since the pandemic began 20 months ago.
