General Information

Description

Wagner had begun work on his cycle with the prose sketch Siegfrieds Tod (Siegfried’s Death), then rolled it back into the past, like the Norns, who, at the beginning of the Third Day, try to tie together the ropes of yesterday and tomorrow. Hagen and Siegfried – the sons continue the duel of their fathers. But Hagen plays with different weapons – sorcery, mendacity and betrayal. Siegfried declares the ring, which came about through the malediction of love, to the symbol of his love. Nevertheless, the curse is stronger. Siegfried betrays his love. Brünnhilde betrays Siegfried. Siegfried swears an oath on the weapon that only a short time later will penetrate his heart. The gods gaze impotently on their own downfall. The struggle for power transfers to the humans who survive the catastrophe and will perhaps understand everything now that they know the end.
