Why See Lyric Opera of Chicago - Gotterdammerung?

Classical & Opera

Gods, Men, Myth and Music

Widely considered the peak of operatic opulence, excess and technical excellence, Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen, AKA The Ring Cycle, is an astonishing masterwork. Comprised of some of the most intoxicatingly beautiful Romantic music ever created and spread out over four sweeping epics, no other work in the opera canon comes close in terms of grandeur. Linked together by one thrilling saga, its tapestry-like weaving took Wagner 26 years to complete and the result is a seamless synthesis of drama, story, action and music. 

Experience the thrilling conclusion to the beloved work when Gotterdammerung (The Twilight of the Gods) comes to the Lyric Opera of Chicago for two very special five hour performances in the spring of 2020. Performed by a large ensemble cast of opera's movers and shakers including American soprano Christine Goerke as Brunnhilde and German tenor Burkhard Fritz as Siegfried, this is one truly monumental work you won't want to miss. 

What is Gotterdammerung About?

Featuring some of opera's most memorable moments, both in terms of orchestration and plot, Gotterdammerung is a high octane tale of bravery, sacrifice, treachery, destruction and renewal. Picking up where the third cycle Siegfried left off, legendary Norse heroes Siegfried and Brunhilde wake up together after a night of passion. Though scared of losing her true love, she encourages him to travel the world to undertake heroic challenges and prove his mettle. In return he gives her the ring at the center of the whole story, setting off a series of catastrophic consequences that could spell apocalypse for Valhalla itself...
