About Edinburgh International Festival: Götterdämmerung
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Following their spectacular Die Walküre in 2017, Sir Andrew Davis and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra reunite with a sensational international cast of soloists for the overwhelming power of Wagner’s greatest achievement.
Human greed rules the world and the deceitful Hagen hatches a vengeful plot to exploit the monumental power of the all- mighty Ring. Valkyrie Brünnhilde battles to restore the world’s order — but at a devastating price.
A work of unimaginable scale and artistry, drawing on Greek and Norse myths, written over 26 years, and totalling 15 hours, Wagner’s Ring cycle is one of the most challenging and rewarding operatic creations in the canon. The fourth and final opera in the Ring cycle is its grandest, a towering myth of inextinguishable love and dark deception that forces the gods themselves to face their doom.
Götterdämmerung marks the culmination of four years of concert performances of the Ring cycle at the International Festival, giving the audience a rare opportunity to watch the orchestra take centre stage, grappling with all the power, emotion and complexities of Wagner’s epic score. Götterdämmerung is certain to be an unmissable International Festival highlight.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: Götterdämmerung are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
