Keith Warner presents a bravura production of the fourth opera in the Ring cycle.
Siegfried has awoken Brünnhilde from a deep sleep and they have fallen in love. Siegfried gives her the magic ring in token of his love, but they are soon caught up in events beyond their control.
Götterdämmerung was Richard Wagner’s starting point in writing the Ring cycle with the other three operas providing background to the central event of Siegfried’s death, which first inspired the composer.
Moving from the mythical landscape of the previous operas to a world more akin to our own, Götterdämmerung follows Siegfried journeys down the Rhine to the deceitful world of the Gibichungs.
This production is sung in German with English surtitles.
