Notes & Reviews:
This production of 'Gotterdammerung' is based on the new complete edition of the works of Richard Wagner. Performed at the Het Muziektheater Amsterdam it blends the lyrical, mythical and philosophical qualities of Wagner's work into a profound unity. Pierre Audi's stage direction is inspired and amazing sets by George Tsypin and wonderful costumes by Oscar-winning Eiko Ishioka complement singing and playing of great intensity from the cast under the energetic baton of Harmut Haenchen, creating a vigorous, almost intimate performance that will leave and indelible impression.
In the fourth and final part of the epic cycle, Der Ring des Nibelungen, the treachery and betrayal which leads to Siegfried's death also heralds the downfall of the gods and the return of the gold to the Rhine.
