The epic journey of gods, mortals and giants comes to a thunderous close.
Houston Grand Opera concludes its historic four-part Ring cycle with Götterdämmerung, (Twilight of the Gods), the final opera in Wagner’s tetralogy.
The heroic Siegfried gives Brünnhilde the ring as a token of their love, but they unexpectedly face challenges beyond their control. In the definitive act of self-sacrifice, Brünnhilde returns the universe to its natural order. Watch as the Rhine overflows, Valhalla burns, and the kingdom of the gods is destroyed.
Don’t miss the fourth and final piece in this overwhelming production featuring an outstanding international cast.
