Götterdämmerung – Twilight of the Gods– seems like the amendment of all the ideas expressed in Siegfried or even the end of the laborious path constructed over the course of the previous operas in the story: the feuerbachian optimism which shone in the final scene of Siegfried quickly becomes, in Götterdämmerung, a rapid and relentless feast of treachery, plots and revenge that leads to the downfall of all the characters, without exception. In other words, Götterdämmerung presents the final and apocalyptic duel between the queens Brünnhilde and Kriemhild as narrated in the epic “Song of the Nibelung”  which was the point of departure around 1848 for Wagner to compose his monumental saga.  This is also the darkest and rabidly vanguard score of the cycle –that second act! –, as well as a phenomenal recapitulation of the musical motifs of the preceding operas. Crowned by a powerful catharsis, Götterdämmerung is the culmination of the musical odyssey which began in the 2018-2019 season with Das Rheingold headed by Pablo Heras-Casado (conductor) and Robert Carsen (production) in a staging that, once again, puts the accent on the ecologist subtext of this immense moral fable.
