• Edinburgh International Festival

Following their spectacular Die Walkre in 2017, Sir Andrew Davis and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra reunite with a sensational international cast of soloists for the overwhelming power of Wagners greatest achievement.

Human greed rules the world and the deceitful Hagen hatches a vengeful plot to exploit the monumental power of the all- mighty Ring. Valkyrie Brnnhilde battles to restore the worlds order " but at a devastating price.

A work of unimaginable scale and artistry, drawing on Greek and Norse myths, written over 26 years, and totalling 15 hours, Wagners Ring cycle is one of the most challenging and rewarding operatic creations in the canon. The fourth and final opera in the Ring cycle is its grandest, a towering myth of inextinguishable love and dark deception that forces the gods themselves to face their doom.

Gtterdmmerung marks the culmination of four years of concert performances of the Ring cycle at the International Festival, giving the audience a rare opportunity to watch the orchestra take centre stage, grappling with all the power, emotion and complexities of Wagners epic score. Gtterdmmerung is certain to be an unmissable International Festival highlight.

This concert will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3 at a future date.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
