On March 12, 2000 

the Premiere of her Brünnhilde in Peter Konwitschny's highly anticipated production of the opera took place at the Württembergische Staatsoper in Stuttgart.

This performance was taped live and broadcasted several times in europe. Later the material was released on DVD.


"The Stuttgart Opera was named for the third time in a row Opera House of the Year.  Main reasons were the staging of GÖTTERDÄMMERUNG, the chorus, and the impressive Bruennhilde of Luana DeVol."







"Luana DeVol, always fully engaged, never tiring, is a shattering as well as thrilling Bruennhilde."



„And when Luana DeVol already sang an impressive Bruennhilde the entire evening, she then outdid herself in the closing Immolation Scene.“

 (Buch Park)





„Luana DeVol as Bruennhilde is the unchallenged star of the evening.“

(Online-Musikmagazin, 2000)  



„Luana DeVol, a Bruennhilde of unusually strong singing and acting ability, embodies pain and violence, is able to trample Gutrune's wedding cake in a rage, yet, as a sister, tenderly embrace her“

(Deutsches Allgemeines Sonntagsblatt)



Luana DeVol was voted 

Singer of the Year 2000 

for her interpretation of Bruennhilde in 

GOETTERDAEMMERUNG at the Stuttgart State Opera
