"Outstanding": In May, Sarah Wegener performed Sieglinde in Wagner's Walküre at the Elbphilharmonie and the Kulturpalast Dresden to rave reviews. The production, which has already been successfully performed in Prague, Cologne and Amsterdam under the direction of Kent Nagano, will be shown for the last time in Lucerne in August.

"(...) an absolutely fitting Sieglinde, who portrays all the suffering she has to bear in a touching and colourful way and underlines it with gestures and facial expressions," was the verdict of opernmagazin. de about Sarah Wegener's performance in Cologne, and the performances in Hamburg and Dresden also met with an enthusiastic response: "Outstanding Sarah Wegener as Sieglinde" was the verdict of the Dresdner Morgenpost, and the Sächsische Zeitung was of the same opinion: "Sarah Wegener as Sieglinde in particular triumphed with her articulation and semi-staged acting." The Hamburg performance was described as follows: "Sarah Wegener and Maximilian Schmitt made an ideal pair as the Wälsungen siblings Sieglinde and Siegmund. Full of colour and with many lyrical and dramatic moments, their forbidden love became an absolute highlight of the performance." (klassik-begeistert.de)
