Götter­dämmerung
Richard Wagner

Presentation

Der Ring des nibelungen reaches its apotheosis

Gathered at the foot of the rock where Siegfried and Brünnhilde have come together, three Norns weave the fate of the world. Past, present and future are interwoven in their rope; when it breaks unexpectedly, the fates still have one oracle: the twilight of the gods is imminent! Götterdämmerung has more than one ending: Siegfried falls victim to intrigue and to his own innocence, Valhalla goes up in flames, Brünnhilde sacrifices herself to return the ring to the Rhinemaidens. Alliances are forged and immediately broken again, magical potions and helmets create painful confusions, and generational traumas result in general destruction. Everything familiar to humans and gods collapses. 

Richard Wagner spent twenty-six years tinkering with the final part of his Ring, from the first sketches for the scenario to the completion of the composition. The score is a fascinating blend of motifs from the entire tetralogy and offers, in this new production by Alain Altinoglu and Pierre Audi, a devastating end to the cycle that has captivated La Monnaie for two seasons.
