Siegfried and Brünnhilde are the ideal mythical couple: the greatest hero the world has ever seen, born of a divine father, and a fearless warrior maiden of equally noble ancestry. As he takes off for more heroic adventures at the beginning of this final part of Wagner's epic Ring cycle, he even gives her his all-powerful ring as reminder of their love. The next time they meet, he's about to marry another woman--and swears he has never seen Brünnhilde. The culmination of one the grandest theatrical journeys, this opera features some of Wagner's most ravishingly beautiful and emotionally shattering music. Margaret Harshaw and Wolfgang Windgassen are the ill-fated couple, with Kurt Böhme as the evil mastermind Hagen

Wagner's mystical opera makes extraordinary demands on the conductor, but James Levine is renowned for the special affection and authority he brings to this transcendent work. The music shimmers and glows, evoking the legendary world of the Knights of the Holy Grail and the pure fool who brings healing power to the land. Peter Hofmann stars as the questing title hero, Jerome Hines sings the wise old man, Gurnemanz, and Mignon Dunn is the voluptuous Kundry, whose erotic temptations almost ensnare the young hero
