Crynodeb

Since opening the Third act of Wagner’s opera Die Walküre in 1870 the ‘Ride of the Valkyries’ has been frequently employed as the musical accompaniment for a variety of visual texts. This has had an accumulative effect on the composition’s semantic significance as each citation serves to expand upon and re-accentuate previous connotations and associations. As such this paper will chart the development of this intertextual reference point through an analysis of the music’s role in its original operatic context and subsequent appearances in three filmic texts; Birth of a Nation (1915), Apocalypse Now (1979), and Jarhead (2005).
