Michigan Opera Theatre is taking opera to a whole new level – literally – with Twilight: Gods, a one-of-a-kind musical experience inside the Detroit Opera House Parking Center! Part live performance, part immersive installation, audiences remain in their cars to experience scenes from the final opera of Wagner’s Ring Cycle on various levels of the parking structure. The “drive-thru” performance features an extraordinary cast in an entirely new light: Christine Goerke, the world’s leading Brünnhilde; internationally-acclaimed tenor Sean Panikkar as Siegfried; and the magnificent bass Morris Robinson as Hagen. Detroit cultural icon Marsha Music performs new poetry that connects Wagner’s mythological world with the here-and-now of our city and our time.
Twilight: Gods is conceived and directed by Yuval Sharon and marks his first production as MOT’s newly-appointed Gary L. Wasserman Artistic Director. Co-commissioned by Michigan Opera Theatre and Lyric Opera of Chicago, Twilight: Gods is a return to live performance and the beginning of a new, innovative era at Michigan Opera Theatre!
