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