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, the third opera of Wagner’s Ring cycle, the characters are extraordinary, and the music utterly exhilarating.
