Götterdämmerung - Edinburgh International Festival

Following their spectacular Die Walküre in 2017, Sir Andrew Davis and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra reunite with a sensational international cast of soloists for the overwhelming power of Wagner’s greatest achievement.

The fourth and final opera in the Ring cycle is its grandest, a towering myth of inextinguishable love and dark deception that forces the gods themselves to face their doom.

Götterdämmerung marks the culmination of four years of concert performances of the Ring cycle at the International Festival, giving the audience a rare opportunity to watch the orchestra take centre stage, grappling with all the power, emotion and complexities of Wagner’s epic score. Götterdämmerung is certain to be an unmissable International Festival highlight.
