Getting Götterdämmerung


Houston Grand Opera’s historic presentation of Richard Wagner’s Ring cycle comes to its climactic conclusion this spring. Join HGO dramaturg Paul Hopper for an in-depth study of Götterdämmerung (The Twilight of the Gods) in preparation for a trip to the final dress rehearsal as we watch the castle of the gods burn to the ground in one of opera’s most extravagant finales.

Paul Hopper serves as Houston Grand Opera’s dramaturg, or the resident opera scholar. His duties include patron education programs, pre-curtain lectures, writing articles for the Opera Cues program books, and creating supertitle translations for all productions. He has worked for the Metropolitan Opera and Santa Fe Opera and has been a guest speaker at the University of Houston, Czech Center Museum Houston, and the Houston-Leipzig Society.
