The Norns, daughters of Erda, can no longer see into the future. The world tree Yggdrasil, its branches broken to pieces, awaits the coming cataclysm. The threads of fate are inextricably entangled, as both Brünhilde and Siegfried are tricked into falling for someone else. First, Siegfried is given a drugged potion which causes him to forget. The betrayed and vengeful Brünnhilde only understands what has happened after Siegfried, slowly recovering his memory, is mortally wounded with Hagen’s spear. Brünnhilde casts the youth’s body into the first flames of the climactic conflagration, before throwing herself into the fire after him. The realm of the Gods and men is destroyed. The Rhine bursts its banks and the accursed ring is returned to its original place. Besides Christian Franz, Hartmut Welker and Irene Theorin, the much sought-after and formidable voice of Matti Salminen – a return visitor to Budapest for this year’s “Wagner in Budapest” festival – will be heard in the role of Hagen, while the part of Gutrune will be sung by Erika Markovics.
