The plot thickens and darkens. The prophecy made in The Rhinegold is fulfilled in Twilight of the Gods, the fourth and last episode of Richard Wagner’s Ring of the Nibelung. Here ends Dieter Dorn and Jürgen Rose’s retelling of the great musical and stage epic that has challenged so many artists before them. Along with conductor Georg Fritzsch and the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, they pare the difficult plot of Twilight of the Gods to its essentials, focusing their clear narrative on the great redemption by love through Brünnhilde’s self-sacrifice and the return of the Ring to the Rhine before nothingness engulfs the world.
