WXXI is please to present the San Francisco Opera series, airing Saturdays on Classical 91.5/FM-HD 91.5-1 beginning on Saturday, August 31, 2013, at 1:00 p.m. The series kicks off with Die Walküre, the second installment in the cycle of four epic operas by Wagner called The Ring of the Nibelung, based loosely on Norse mythology.
