Recorded live on stage at New York's Metropolitan Opera House in 2012, the final opera in Wagner's 'Ring Cycle' is broadcast to cinemas. Siegfried and Brünnhilde's love is torn apart by the curse of the ring. A trio of scheming humans separate the two in a desperate attempt to steal the ring for themselves. Their villainous plan fails, but they succeed in murdering Siegfried. Heartbroken, Brünnhilde takes the ring and leaps into the hero's funeral pyre, causing a global cataclysm and the twilight of the gods. Starring Deborah Voigt (Brünnhilde), Wendy Bryn Harmer (Gutrune), Waltraud Meier (Waltraute), Jay Hunter Morris (Siegfried), Iain Paterson (Gunther), Eric Owens (Alberich), Hans-Peter König (Hagen). The conductor is Fabio Luisi. (Runs 287 minutes, including one interval.)
