An Anthroposophical Journey through Wagner’s Mythical Ring

 

 VINCENT ROPPOLO

As the Three Norns are weaving the Destiny of the World, suddenly the thread breaks…

We will explore the “Twilight of the Gods,” Götterdämmerung, in our final journey through Wagner’s Ring Cycle.

What happens when we drink the draught of Forgetfulness? What is our redemption? Who will be our Redeemer?
