About this show

A culmination of the dramatic and musical ideas set forth in the previous three works of the Ring, the final opera of Richard Wagner's cycle is also a complete and monumental theatrical journey of its own. The central conflict of the Ring remains the same over the course of four operas, but the protagonists change. In Götterdämmerung, the ring that the Nibelung dwarf Alberich made out of the stolen Rhinegold continues to rule the destinies of humans, including Alberich's own son Hagen. Only Brünnhilde, once a warrior goddess and now Siegfried's mortal wife, has the perspective and wisdom to grasp the full significance of the situation — her journey toward the ultimate sacrifice that will absolve heaven and earth from primal corruption is the great drama of this opera.
