Fulham Opera are back at St John's Church in Walham Green performing Götterdämmerung - the final instalment of Richard Wagner's Ring.

Fulham Opera, West London's premier independent opera company, will perform this exciting production on four days in November - Fridays and Sundays, November 8 and 10 and 15 and 17. All performances start at 5pm, and at 4.15pm before the final show, there will  also be a short talk:  A précis to Götterdämmerung by David Trippett, author of Wagner's Melodies, to finish at 4.45.  The talk will be free to anyone with a ticket for the performance on the 17th.

Fulham Opera staged the first part of the Fulham Ring, Das Rheingold, in summer 2011, and admit it was something of a leap in the dark.

Cast with some of the finest emerging Wagnerians around – the company boasts several current and former Bayreuth Bursary finalists and prizewinners – this innovative staging with piano accompaniment was a success with both audience and critics, and Fulham Opera then decided they had to do a complete Ring.

They followed it up with Walkure in May 2012, and now the fourth and final part, Gotterdammerung is here, with the intriguing sub-title: In Wagner, it is never a good idea to accept drinks from strangers.

The cast is as follows:

Norn 1: Lindsay Bramley | Norn 2: Jemma Brown | Norn 3: Janet Fischer | Brunnhilde:  Zoë South | Siegfried:  Jonathan Finney  | Hagen:   Oliver Gibbs | Waltraute:  Jemma Brown | Woglinde:  Emma Peaurt | Wellgunde: Alexa Mason | Flosshilde:  Lindsay Bramley  |  Alberich: Mark Holland | Gunther: Stephen John Svanholm | Gutrune:  Laura Hudson |  Vassals: London Gay Men’s Chorus

Directed by Fiona Williams

Musical Director:  Ben Woodward

Assistant Musical Director:  Nick Fletcher
