Götterdämmerung (The Twilight of the Gods)
By Richard Wagner
The tragedy of the warrior-maiden Brünnhilde, her beloved hero Siegfried, and all the gods brings nothing less than the end of one world, the beginning of a new one, and the ultimate triumph of love over evil. In the entire operatic repertoire, you won’t find greater musical and dramatic grandeur, or more staggeringly intense emotions, than in Wagner’s Twilight of the Gods. Only a work of this scale could close the monumental Ring cycle. Seeing and hearing it in a live performance is one of the greatest experiences that any operagoer can enjoy.
