Keith Warner’s production of the third opera in Wagner’s epic Ring cycle combines elemental forces with contemporary concerns.
Mime has raised young Siegfried to steal an all-powerful ring, guarded by a dragon. But as Siegfried approaches maturity, he yearns to find the truth about his origins and rebels against his dubious guardian.
Siegfried features some of the most comic elements in the Ring cycle including Siegfried’s Forging Song as well as exquisite lyrical passages for orchestra such as Forest Murmurs.
