Der Ring des Nibelungen: Siegfried
Conductor: Franz Welser-Möst
Director: Sven-Eric Bechtolf
"Siegfried - this human being must overshadow the gods' splendour!", Richard Wagner enthusiastically wrote about his creation - the young and strong hero, who is raised by the dwarf Mime. Siegfried becomes the central character in last two parts of the Ring Cycle: in the music drama of the same name he forges his sword Notung, gains the Nibelung's treasure and meets Wotan's daughter Brünnhilde, whom he falls in love with.
