Who can wake the sleeping Brünnhilde? Only the hero who knows no fear. Enter Siegfried – grandson of Wotan and bearer of his hopes for regaining the ring.
It is a journey of awakenings. Siegfried’s realisation of his lineage and his stumblings towards an understanding of his momentous destiny. The literal awakenings of both the sleeping dragon – jealously hoarding the ring and its riches – and of the now mortal Brünnhilde. And the awakening of passionate love as Siegfried pledges his fidelity to her with the fateful ring.
