Die Walkure was great.
I saw Domingo in Die Walkure when Chicago's Lyric did the Ring Cycle about 6 or 7 years ago. I though he was great and the opera good but I always liked Gotterdammerung better, then when we saw it a week later I was blown away. I was humming themes (leitmotifs) all the way home. Was one of the best drives home from a concert ever.

The other 3 opera's in the Ring are good (not much of a fan of Das Reingold myself but I review it from time to time, as part of a whole it is better) but Gotterdammerung is one of the all time greatest works ever.
