About

Siegfried is the third of the four operas that comprise Wagner’s epic tetralogy Der Ring des Nibelungen (‘The Ring of the Nibelung’). Siegfried, raised by the evil dwarf Mime, discovers that he is the son of Siegmund and Sieglinde. He must negotiate betrayals and dangers in a landscape of dragons and magic in order to kill Fafner, who has the Ring, as well as Mime, who has designs on it. Finally, in music of resplendent drama, Siegfried, the hero who knows no fear, can penetrate the ring of fire to awaken the sleeping Valkyrie, Brünnhilde. Sir Donald Runnicles conducts an internationally acclaimed cast in this innovative new production by Norwegian director Stefan Herheim.

The acclaimed Deutsche Oper Berlin Ring cycle was issued in DVD and Blu-ray sets on Naxos in November 2022. The individual operas are now being made available to buy separately starting with Das Rheingold (2110740/NBD0157V), then Die Walküre (211074142/NBD0158V), followed by Siegfried and Götterdämmerung.

It is directed by the Award-winning Norwegian Stefan Herheim who is acclaimed as one of the most important directors of the moment, known for his emphasis on the historical contexts of ideas.

In addition to working with the Orchestra of the Deutsche Oper Berlin, Sir Donald Runnicles is a proven Wagner expert who is currently continuing his Ring interpretations at the opera houses of Hamburg, Berlin, Vienna and San Francisco, and at the BBC Proms in London, the Edinburgh International Festival and The Metropolitan Opera in New York.
