NEW PRODUCTION

SIEGFRIED

by Richard Wagner
Sung in German with projected English translations


SIEGFRIED IS FEARLESS. FOLLOW HIM ON HIS VALIANT, ADVENTUROUS PATH THROUGH THE OPERA.

Watch as he vanquishes the dragon Fafner and gets the better of his own wickedly devious guardian, Mime. Will our hero heed the warnings of his wise grandfather, Wotan, disguised as The Wanderer? And what happens when he braves the magic fire, awakens the sleeping Brünnhilde, and is enraptured by love for the very first time? In this epic Wagnerian saga, the characters are unforgettable, the music utterly exhilarating.
