Götterdämmerung

Robert Lepage’s landmark production of Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen is back for three complete cycles in spring 2013, on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the composer’s birth.

The Ring’s cataclysmic finale stars Deborah Voigt as Brünnhilde opposite Lars Cleveman as Siegfried. Hans-Peter König is Hagen and Fabio Luisi conducts.
