The Ring Cycle reaches its devastating finale in Götterdämmerung’s tale of treachery and destruction. All seems lost after love is betrayed by naked ambition and villains outsmart heroes.

Siegfried is unwittingly ensnared in a plot by Gunther and Gutrune and their half-brother, who wants the ring for himself. Siegfried drinks a magic potion that makes him forget Brünnhilde and fall in love with Gutrune.

Enraged by his infidelity, Brünnhilde joins forces with Hagen, who murders Siegfried. However, on discovering the truth about Siegfried’s betrayal, Brünnhilde takes drastic action. In her Immolation Scene, she redeems the world by leaping into Siegfried’s funeral pyre and returning the ring to its rightful owners.

The Rhinemaidens joyfully reclaim their gold, drag Hagen into the depths and the old world order is swept away by flood and fire.
