Der Ring des Nibelungen: Siegfried

Production: Sven-Eric Bechtolf
Stage design: Rolf Glittenberg
Costumes: Marianne Glittenberg

In 1856 Richard Wagner began writing the musical score for his opera Siegfried, the third - and most light-hearted - part of his Ring des Nibelungen tetralogy. However, he interrupted his composition several time, and completed the work only 15 years later, in 1871. The intervening years saw the premieres of Tristan und Isolde (1865) and Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg (1868), but above all the conception of the Festival Hall in Bayreuth. It was the new and changed acoustics of the hall which the composer had in mind when he returned to his work on Siegfried.
