Götterdämmerung by Richard Wagner ( Recording )
123 editions published between 1957 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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
