Wagner – Götterdämmerung
From March 8th 2012
With its cataclysmic climax, the Met’s new Ring cycle, directed by Robert Lepage, comes to its resolution. Deborah Voigt (left) stars as Brünnhilde and Jay Hunter Morris is Siegfried—the star-crossed lovers doomed by fate. Fabio Luisi conducts.
“Ask any conductor who conducts all ten Wagner evenings what his favorite opera is, and we all say Götterdämmerung, which has every kind of emotion you could imagine on stage.” JAMES LEVINE
“The more the story progresses, the more it moves away from the realm of the gods to focus on the power and ambition of human beings. Götterdämmerung is about Brünnhilde in society, her journey as a character, and her role as the heroine who must restore balance to the world.” ROBERT LEPAGE
