Wagner's 'Götterdämmerung' at La Scala Milan,
reviewed by GIUSEPPE PENNISI

 

On 18 May 2013 I was at La Scala for the opening night of Götterdämmerung, the last opera of Richard Wagner's Ring as part of a joint production by the Milan Opera House and the Berlin Staatsoper in collaboration with the Antwerp Toneelhuis, an experimental 'total theatre' group. Reviews of two of the previous three operas of this Ring production have been published here [Das Rheingold and Die Walküre] when they were premiered at La Scala in 2010-2012. In Milan, Götterdämmerung will be performed until 7 June as a single opera and then as part of two Ring cycles until 29 June. In Berlin, the production is expected to enter the standard repertory of the opera house and to be in its program for several years to come...
