• The fourth and final part of Wagner's masterpiece, his epic Ring Cycle, given a revolutionary treatment by the Stuttgart Opera.

• For the first time in the history of The Ring cycle, each of its four sections was given to a different stage-director, providing an exciting range of varying perspectives with a unified theme. The decision to stage Wagner's Ring in four separate pieces, rather than as a single, integrated work spread over four evenings, liberated Gotterdammerung in particular from a need to draw together the threads of a holistic concept of the work.

• Director Peter Konwitschny chooses to ignore the wider myth-bound associations of the work and concentrates on the immediate motivations, emotions and obsessions of the characters. Gone are the gods awaiting nightfall in their imposing hall; the action instead is set on a simple wooden stage of a touring theatre company.
