General Information

Description

Only an individual without fear can turn Mime’s dream into reality, forge the shattered sword anew, slay Fafner the dragon, snatch the ring away from him and walk straight into Mime’s knife – and all the power will be Mime’s. But he himself is too frightened of the Wanderer, in whose puzzle game he loses his head, of the dragon, whom he wants his foster son to slay, of his brother, whom he meets in the forest, and of the fearless Siegfried, who thanks to a message from a prophetic bird helps himself to the ring and slaughters Mime. But Wotan’s plan for a free hero also comes to naught: Siegfried smashes his spear with the sword and stands fearlessly before Brünnhilde. The sight of her body sets him atremble, and he finally learns the true meaning of fear. In the glow of the sun, the two discover their love. Mountain cave. Forest. Wilderness. Mountain peak. The second day of the work belongs to nature. But the guise of the harmless, nature-loving Wanderer fails to protect the father of the gods from his curse.
