Description
Recorded live at the Staatsoper Stuttgart in October 2002 and January 2003, this updated, pared-down production of the last opera in the Ring cycle eschewed elaborate stagecraft and traditional costuming to focus on characterization through music.

"So, what of Götterdämmerung! Well, you'll have to see it to believe it! This is business meets Hollywood or Captain of Industry meets Madonna. There is more of course … but one thing is sure, you will never be bored with this Ring."—Musical Opinion

"For all its unconventional staging features, for all its sass and anachronisms, the performance works, at least for me. The singers … are generally quite good. I liked Albert Bonnema as Siegfried and Roland Brecht as Hagen, both being effective actors and fine singers. Luana DeVol is good as Brünnhilde too … [and] Eva-Maria Westbroek is also quite convincing as Gutrune. But, as in the other productions in this series, the real star is conductor Lothar Zagrosek, whose grasp of tempos and shaping of the score are always incisive, and who manages to draw excellent playing from his Stuttgart forces. The sound is fine, too. As with Rheingold and Siegfried, the bottom line here is, if you are open to a different approach to Wagner, you should find this DVD quite compelling."—Classical Net
