Episode 4 The Gods 16:53 minutes
Mystical and otherworldly,The Gods calls on perhaps the most eclectic and dense assortment of sounds of any episode in the opera, juxtaposing frail humanity with potent Godhood. Language suffers an almost complete breakdown in the mouths of the Gods; it cannot help us understand their ways. By the end of the episode, however, the Gods have revealed themselves as made of the same clay as the humans over whose lives they have dominion, and music teaches us to understand and communicate again.
