Description
Götterdämmerung, or The Twilight of the Gods, is the final opera in Richard Wagner's four-part masterwork, The Ring of the Nibelungs cycle. In a strong cast, Nadine Weissmannn deserves special notice for her virtuosic turn as Waltraute. This live recording from 2008 was filmed at the Deutsches Nationaltheater in Weimar.

"It is a thrill to listen to Staatskapelle Weimer and conductor Carl St. Clair shape Wagner's rich score so cleanly and brilliantly. The music pulses and leaps in surround sound. The singers … sound fabulous—from Catherine Foster's grand Brünnhilde to Renatus Mészár's big lunk of Hagen."—Toronto Star

"This orchestra is very good, quite up to anything Wagner requires. Its brass players in particular are flawless, and all the horn calls and other critical brass passages are performed essentially to perfection…. St Clair's performances are powerful and grandly effective…. I found this performance fascinating…. If you are strong enough to stand its determined subversiveness and its psychological trials, it is firmly recommended…. There are excellent subtitles, useful notes and plot summaries."—American Record Guide
