In the organizer's words:
Siegfried, the son of Siegmund and Sieglinde, is an energetic young man. Raised by the devious Nibelungen Mime, he does not know his parents - only fragments of a sword were left behind by his father. Siegfried reforges the steel into a strong weapon with which he slays the dragon Fafner. The dragon had been guarding the ring, which Siegfried now takes. And he wins Brünnhilde, whom he awakens from sleep. In the third part of his "Ring" tetralogy, Wagner incorporates fairy-tale motifs into his great mythological tale. The well-known story of "Einem, der ausog, das Fürchten zu lernen" (One who set out to learn to fear) is reflected in "Siegfried," as are episodes from the medieval "Nibelungenlied. Images of nature, such as the famous "Waldweben," testify to Wagner's special abilities as a painter of sound; the musical depictions of fire and thunderstorms, of smelting and forging, and more, also succeed very vividly. The gods appear for the last time: Wotan, once so powerful, has turned into a wanderer who, however, hardly intervenes actively in the plot any more; Erda, previously still omniscient, who had forebodingly announced the end of the gods in "Rheingold," no longer knows anything about the course of the world. The future seems to belong to Siegfried and Brünnhilde, their jubilation knows no bounds. And yet one senses that a tragic finale is still to come. This content has been machine translated.
