Pictured above Siegfried (Jay Hunter Morris) prepares to awaken Brunnhilde (Nina Stemme) with a kiss.
When we last "saw" Brunnhilde, her Father, Wotan, had just put her to sleep on a rock surrounded by flames.
Today, the final of the four Operas that compose "The Ring" will begin it's
5 1/2 hours of glorious love, greed, jealousy, betrayal and ultimately the end of the world. "Götterdämmerung" translates to "Twilight of the Gods"...
Here is a little video "snippet" just released from Thursday's Final Dress.....
For those of you * in the know* - Gerd is the baritone singing next to Siegfried as they pledge "Blood Brotherhood"! ;
As we say on any opening performance: "Toi, Toi, Toi!"
May your Sunday be warm and lovely,
Love from *Valhalla*,
