The high-water mark of opera
Translated in English as Twilight of the Gods, Gotterdammerung is the concluding part of Richard Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen ("The Ring of the Nibelung"), a cycle of German-language musical dramas described by opera stage director as the "high-water mark of our art form, the most massive challenge any opera can undertake." However, Gotterdammerung was in fact the celebrated composer's starting point, with the death of its hero later inspiring Das Rheingold ("The Rhinegold"), Die Walkure ("The Valkyrie") and Siegfried. Loosely based on various characters from Norse mythology, "Gotterdammerung" took an astonishing 26 years to complete, eventually receiving its world premiere in 1876 at the very first Bayreuth Festival. Moving from the fantastical landscapes of its three predecessors to a more realistic, modern-day setting, the tale of star-crossed lovers Siegfried and Brunnhilde explores themes of treachery, murder, revenge and naked ambition with devastating results. Experience the pure drama of one of Wagner's most acclaimed works by purchasing your "Gotterdammerung" tickets on StubHub today.
An awe-inspiring tale of gods and mortals
Gotterdammerung has been staged by numerous prestigious opera houses over the last 150 years, with Daniel Barenboim, Bertrand de Billy and Zubin Mehta just a few of the celebrated conductors to have worked on the production in the modern era. In 2018, the musical drama returned to the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden for a staging directed by Keith Warner, set designed by Stefanos Lazaridis and music conducted by Antonio Pappano, the venue's English-Italian music director whose previous credits include Wagner's Tristan und Isolde. German tenor Stefan Vinke and Swedish soprano Nina Stemme played the leads Siegfried and Brunnhilde, while other cast members included Austrian baritone Markus Butter, Danish bass Stephen Milling and Scottish mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill. The Royal Opera Chorus and Orchestra of the Royal Opera House also played their parts in an epic six-hour production that received a rapturous response from the sell-out crowd. Whether you're an opera aficionado or looking for your first taste of the art form, the closing chapter of Wagner's celebrated cycle is both an audio and visual delight.
