Met "Gotterdammerung" 10 AM Saturday

May 10, 2013

Wagner's mighty "Ring" Cycle reaches its finale with "The Twilight of the Gods," broadcast live on IPR starting at 10 AM Saturday. Deborah Voigt is Brünnhilde - "a role she has made her own," according to the New York Times, which also praised conductor Fabio Luisi, for drawing "a muscular, passionate, but never hurried performance from the orchestra."
