Robert Lepage’s technologically advanced new staging of Wagner’s Ring cycle comes to an epic climax with Götterdämmerung (“The Twilight of the Gods.”)
Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi leads one of opera’s most thrilling dramas, which stars Deborah Voigt as Brünnhilde, the warrior-maiden-turned-mortal whose actions lead to global apocalypse.
Jay Hunter Morris, who stepped into the title role of Wagner’s Siegfried earlier this season to great acclaim, again sings the role of the doomed hero.
The distinguished cast of Wagnerians also includes the American soprano Wendy Bryn Harmer as the princess Gutrune; the German mezzo-soprano Waltraud Meier as Waltraute, a Valkyrie messenger of doom; German bass Hans-Peter König as the greedy villain Hagen; American bass-baritone Eric Owens as Hagen’s father, the evil dwarf Alberich; and Scottish bass-baritone Iain Paterson as the cowardly human king Gunther.
Patricia Racette hosts the transmission.
“Götterdämmerung is the most theatrically effective staging of the four works in this epic series, and the clearest representation of the director Robert Lepage’s vision…Fabio Luisi drew an uncommonly articulate and nuanced account of this daunting opera.” — The New York Times
