Saturday April 27th - The Metropolitan Opera New York presents Wagner's Gotterdammerung 

Wagner's epic cycle concludes with acts of betrayal, murder, vengeance, and, finally, the destruction of the world. Christine Goerke plays Brunnhilde, whose heroic self-sacrifice paves the way for humankind's redemption and rebirth. Andreas Schager sings the role of the hero Siegfried, and Eric Owens is Hagen. Philippe Jordan conducts the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and Chorus.
