Götterdämmerung Pewter Medallion

Item# 1000009531


Götterdämmerung Pewter Medallion

Figurative sculptor and mask maker Beckie Kravetz has created a series of double-sided pewter medallions inspired by Wagner’s Ring Cycle. This Götterdämmerung medallion features an image of Brünnhilde on one side, with the broken rope of the Norns hovering above her head.  On the reverse, we see the Rhine overflowing its banks and Valhalla engulfed in flames. The Ring floats over all the destruction.

The medallion is approximately 4” and comes with a black wire stand.

Richard Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen

Conceived and written over a period of more than 25 years, Wagner’s Ring cycle is an epic musical journey of four operas: Das Rheingold, Die Walküre, Siegfried, and Götterdämmerung. Its story of gods, dwarves, and men and the quest for an all-powerful ring was inspired by many sources, including 13th-century Icelandic writings and the medieval German Nibelungenlied. The complete cycle was first seen at the inaugural Bayreuth Festival in 1876. The Met’s landmark production, directed by Robert Lepage, premiered over the course of the 2010–11 and 2011–12 seasons. The DVD release of its Live in HD presentation won the 2013 Grammy Award for Best Opera Recording.
