Götterdämmerung (“Twilight of the Gods”) is the final opera of Wagner’s epic tetralogy Der Ring des Nibelungen (“The Ring of the Nibelung”) in which his visionary masterpiece reaches its cataclysmic conclusion. Betrayal and death, murder and remorse, lie at the opera’s heart, in a work that draws together every plot element in writing of blazing intensity. As the ring is restored to the Rhinemaidens, the age of the gods ends, with the opera offering the certainty of destruction but the consolation of renewal. 

Staged by the award-winning director Stefan Herheim, this innovative new production from Deutsche Oper Berlin features an acclaimed international cast conducted by Sir Donald Runnicles. The release includes a “making of” documentary featuring behind the scenes footage as well as interviews with Stefan Herheim and Sir Donald Runnicles.

History

Götterdämmerung

Götterdämmerung composed between 1869-1874, is Richard Wagner’s grand finale of the Ring Cycle. The four operas in the series include Das Rheingold (The Rhinegold), Die Walküre (The Valkyrie), Siegfried and Götterdämmerung (Twilight of the Gods).

A culmination of the dramatic and musical ideas set forth in the previous three works of the Ring is also a complete and monumental theatrical journey of its own with the saga’s complex ideas finding their full expression.

This epic drama ends in acts of betrayal, murder, vengeance and finally, the destruction of the world told in a complex plot.

Götterdämmerung presents a unique challenge for the lead tenor and soprano, performing a cathartic 15-minute narrative by Brünnhilde that is among the longest and most powerful unbroken vocal solos in the operatic repertory.

The Met’s production of Götterdämmerung in its 2018–19 season featured minimal otherworldly landscapes with digital imagery to achieve a modern interpretation of the composer’s masterpiece.

It received its premiere at the Bayreuth Festspielhaus on August 17,1876 as part of the first complete performance of the Ring Cycle.

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.
