This production of Götterdammerung from Stuttgart begins well with bag lady Norns. It then switches to Brünnhilde's mountain-top, which is a kitchen table surrounded by a ring of paper flames. Siegfried, for some unknown reason, is dressed as Fred Flintsone, in bearskins. He goes off on his Rhine adventure wearing what looks like Brünnhilde's breastplate, with sticky-out breasts.Things improve in the Hall of the Gibichungs. Roland Bracht as Hagen, Herman Itturralde as Gunther and Eva-Maria Westbrook as Gutrune create a well-characterised trio of conspirators and are vocally in command of their parts. The amnesiac Siegfried's return to Brünnhilde and the mutual denunciations of Siegfried and Brünnhilde are clearly done, which is quite an accomplishment as this part of the proceedings can be rather confusing. I thought Luana DeVol, as Brünnhilde, was a tiny too acquiescent to her ravishment, dropping her knickers as she sings "What choice do I have, miserable woman?" The set for the Gibichung's hall is just a tiny plywood scene fronted by a black plastic curtain but it is quite effective. The Gibichungs and their servants all wear modern suits, in contrast to Siegfried's bearskin, and the huge chorus is very effective. Similarly, the Rheinmaidens' stage is also effective, done vs a easy rural back-projection they are able to dip into and out of an on-stage Rhine. I noticed that one of the maidens, Janet Collins did double duty as one of the Norns.Thus far, the production is moderately effective having powerful vocal performances with only two exceptions. Unfortunately, these two exceptions are Albert Bonnema's strangulated Siegfried and Luana DeVol's shrieky Brünnhilde. The production all goes pear-shaped when we reach Brünnhilde's immolation. The dead Siegfried and Gunther stand up and walk off the scene leaving Brünnhilde standing alone. The house lights come up as if she is giving a concert performance. Luana DeVol just cannot carry this stage on her own. I was distracted by the number of shining bald heads in the audience seen from the camera position at the back of the illuminated auditorium. I was also distracted by Brünnhilde's horse, which is a horse's head on a stick. As the stage ends, the director, Bert Neumann gives up entirely. The curtain descends and Wagner's scene directions describing the Rhine breaking its banks and Valhalla going up in flames are simply projected onto the curtain while the orchestra, under Lothar Zagrosek plays insipidly on. What an anticlimax after 16 hours of opera.
I absolutely love the Ring Cycle, but I confess that I didn't think much overall of the Stuttgart productions. Das Rheingold and Die Walkure were dull and Siegfried was cheap, irritating and overly-silly, all three of which were saved only by the melody and as close as two or three nice performances for every production. Gotterdammerung was the least problematic, but there are still problems. For starters it is the least cheap-looking, with Gibichung's Hall the greatest overall set of the four productions.That's not to tell it is fully excellent visually. The set for Brunnhilde's rock is very badly painted, and of the costumes Hagen and Alberich's were the only ones I type of liked, the others especially Brunnhilde's fluffy bunny-like nightdress and the Norns reminiscent of bag ladies were strange. The scene results also underwhelm, especially Grane, who instead of majestic is tiny more than a wooden stick horse. It's like the rubber frog seen in Das Rheingold all over again.On the technical side, the sound is clear as is the picture quality and the video directing is good. Musically, this is again the greatest of the four. The orchestra don't sound underpowered and enjoy with a lush and strong sound, the beginning is not quite mysterious enough but at least there is some impact. And the conducting didn't plod too much or was overly-bombastic in the climaxes, a large trouble in especially Die Walkure.Staging-wise, it is not as dull as Rheingold or Walkure or is as silly as Siegfried. There are some nice scenes here, like the begin with the Norns, Hagen's call and the stage between Brunnhilde and Waltraute. Plus, Alberich's death did bring out a slightly more human edge to Hagen, some may argue that this weakens his hero but I found it did work. However, there is an uneasy mix of horror and comedy involved here, such as the dead Siegfried and Gunther visibly walking off for Brunnhilde to sing the Immolation scene, which for me is almost as terrible as Tristan still being alive and inanely grinning during Isolde's Liebestod in the 1998 production of Tristan Und Isolde. And don't receive me started on the entire hiding the bear(with the Rheinmaidens) and cake business.As for the performances, they are not brilliant across the board, but there are a several outstanding ones and these performances are among the greatest of the Stuttgart Ring Cycle performances. The standouts for me were Roland Bracht, Franz Joseph Kappelmann and Hernan Iturraide. Bracht's Hagen is truly outstanding, sonorous and evil, not quite as nice as Salminen at the Met but one of the stronger assumptions of the role on DVD in my opinion. Kappelmann is an Alberich that is menacing yet we do feel for him, nice considering that in Gotterdammerung Alberich is cute much a cameo role. As Gunther, Iturraide sings beautifully, with a quite appealing Bel-Canto-like quality, contrasting I feel well with the role of Hagen.Tichina Vaughn is a moving and well sung Waltraute, making more of an impression than her Fricka in Walkure, which was nice but here she has much better help than in the second act of Walkure(undermined by a very unconvincing Wotan) in her large stage in Act 2 with Brunnhilde. Eva Marie Westbroek rounds off the convincing trio of conspirators as Gutrune, vocally and physically pretty and she shows rage and sorrow over Siegfried's death very well. The Norns are well done(even with a couple of wobbly moment from the first Norn), with their opening stage one of the better scenes of the production, and the Rheinmaidens have much more to do than in Rheingold. The chorus are fantastic, especially in Hagen's large aria.Luana DeVol is not terrible as Brunnhilde. I did tell in my Siegfried review that Lisa Gasteen was the greatest Brunnhilde of the three productions Brunnhilde is part of. I did forget to tell that that applies only vocally. I do think that DeVol would've been better vocally if she had done the role ten years earlier, with moments that come across as shrieky for my liking. Thankfully though, she is not as promiscuous as Brunnhilde was made in Siegfried and, while she is not in the greatest vocal shape, I didn't receive the sense that the role was too massive for her like I did with Renate Behle in Walkure. Her Immolation Stage is tense, moving and thrilling, singlehandedly the greatest piece of acting of Behle, Gasteen and DeVol place together.Which brings me sadly to the low url of the cast, the Siegfried of Albert Bonnema. He does fit the part better physically than Jon Frederic West and marginally more convincing as an actor. The largest trouble was his vocal production and how he was directed. There are one too many times in this production where Siegfried does come across as too comical, which really jars with everybody else and the fact he is more the intense and heroic figure in this opera. The vocal production sadly is no better, coming across as strained and under-pitch most of the time.In conclusion, has its issues but of my least favorite of any Ring Cycle production on DVD( the others are 1990 Met, 2007-9 Valencia, 1980 Chereau-Boulez and 1992-3 Bayreuth, the 2010-2 Met productions are not on DVD but that Ring Cycle was better than the Stuttgart Ring as well) this Gotterdammerung is the least bad. 6/10 Bethany Cox
