The third in the chronicle, Siegfried has it all - tempestuous gods, a fearsome dragon, a courageous hero and a passionate romance. Featuring the Ring Cycle's most light-hearted and joyful music, Christine Goerke reprises her role as Brunnhilde with Andreas Schager and Stefan Vinke sharing Siegfried.
Concerning the son of doomed lovers Siegmund and Sieglinde, Siegfried is the tale of a child raised with no fear, to be tool to conniving foster father Mime, brother of original ring-bearer Alberich. Mime thirsts for the power of the unholy band, and trains the unwitting Siegfried to defeat the giant Fafner, who now holds the ring and has transformed into a fearsome dragon.
