Summary "With this 2013 recording of “Götterdämmerung”, the musically and visually compelling Scala “Ring” Cycle by Daniel Barenboim and Guy Cassiers was completed and proved to be one of the highlights of the Richard Wagner bicentenary. Iréne Theorin, acclaimed worldwide for her portrayal of Wagner's heroines, stars as Brünnhilde opposite Lance Ryan, who continues his radiant portrayal of the tragic hero Siegfried. The strong cast also includes Mikhail Petrenko as the dark antagonist Hagen and Johannes Martin Kränzle, who once again shines as his father Alberich. Opera star Waltraud Meier has a memorable appearance as Brünnhilde's sister Waltraute. “Götterdämmerung”, the final instalment of Wagner's “Ring of the Nibelung”, is a story of human passions. Two essentially benevolent creatures, involved with and possibly doomed by their traffic with the gods, find treachery and evil in the world of the humans, and are ruined by the dark side of humanity"--Distributor
