Wagner (1813 - 1883) GÖTTERDÄMMERUNG

Cristina Obregón, María Rodríguez, Francisca Beaumont
Symphony Orchestra of the Gran Teatre del Liceu/Bertrand de Billy

In the final part of Wagner’s epic cycle, Der Ring des Nibelungen, Siegfried’s world descends into falsehood and betrayal before his cursed life is ended by a single spear. Fate ignites the final conflagration, which sets the world to await its new beginning.

Filmed at Barcelona’s Gran Teatre del Liceu in 2004, Harry Kupfer’s stunning production, first staged in Berlin, numbers among the greatest productions of modern times and is recorded in sumptuous surround sound.

REVIEWS
‘this is the best small-screen realization of a Ring opera I have seen.’ -- International Record Review

‘Outstanding is Graham Clark as Loge - worth the price of this DVD alone. A superb fusion of singing, music and stagecraft making this the first in what might be the definitive Ring cycle on film...’ -- Musicweb Intl

‘With Siegfried and Götterdämmerung, the Liceu crowned the Ring cycle with complete success at all levels, beginning with Harry Kupfer’s clever production from Berlin. Bertrand de Billy, in his last performances as music director of the theatre, enjoyed a well-deserved personal triumph.’ -- Opera, September 2004 (performance review)
