General Information

Description

The clash of the clans nourishes the battlefield. The Valkyries, the children of the god, are just instruments of the father to gather together an army of the dead for him.

Wotan’s progeny are to secure his power: the twins, Siegmund and Sieglinde, seem born to this task. The brother lands at the home of his enemy – finds his sister there after a separation of many years and wins her heart. All of this runs according to plan, and yet the two siblings have violated the laws. The father must sacrifice his son. Brünnhilde, his favorite daughter, defies her father for the first time and protects the incestuous couple – in vain.

On the first day of Der Ring des Nibelungen, in Die Walküre, first performed in 1870 in Munich, the father-god’s plans to undo the entanglements come to naught. At the end, his children are either murdered or punished and exiled. All Wotan can do is wait for the hero of the next generation – Sieglinde now carries him in her womb, the seed of her brother, somewhere on her flight through the forest.
