This performance marked Birgit Nilsson's first Met broadcast in one of her most celebrated roles, Brünnhilde, in the Ring cycle's final installment. Hans Hopf sings Siegfried, the man whose heroic deeds eventually bring about the twilight of the gods, and the sensational Gottlob Frick is Hagen. With its story of love, treachery, murder--and, ultimately, redemption--Götterdämmerung brings Wagner's epic to a monumental conclusion. The great Erich Leinsdorf leads the Met Orchestra and Chorus

Wagner said this early-Romantic gem was the most German of German operas. Its irresistible mix of colorful folklore, the spooky supernatural, a tender romance, and the passionate struggle between good and evil are all captured in Weber's tuneful and dramatic score. The cast in this rare U.S. performance is sensational: Sándor Kónya as our hero, the forester Max, who must win a shooting contest in order to marry his beloved Agathe (the ravishing Pilar Lorengar), despite the dark plotting of Caspar (Gerd Feldhoff)
