Die Walküre

Quick Info

Richard Wagner

In order to prevent Alberich’s bid for power, father of the gods Wotan has sired nine Valkyries who are to gather an army of fallen heroes for him in Valhalla. His son Siegmund, conceived through a relationship with a mortal woman, is the free-born hero who shall win him back the ring. But without knowing Wotan’s plans Siegmund undoes them by falling in love with his twin sister Sieglinde and together they conceive Siegfried. When Wotan’s favourite daughter Brünnhilde defies her father’s orders to bring about Siegfried’s downfall out of pity, he banishes her to a rock of fire from which only the strongest hero is capable of rescuing her. This will be Siegfried.
