The Valkyrie was first performed against Wagner's wishes at the Königliches Hof- und National-Theater in Munich on 26 June 1870. Wagner was forced to allow the performance at the insistence of his patron King Ludwig II of Bavaria.
The opera later received its official premiere as part of the complete Ring cycle on 14 August 1876, in the Bayreuther Festspielhaus. Musical highlights include the "Spring Song", "The Ride of the Valkyries" and the "Magic Fire Music".
