Der Ring des Nibelungen: Siegfried
The third part of the Ring cycle focuses on Siegfried, the child of Sieglinde and Siegmund. His upbringing has been wild end free, and he has never learned the meaning of fear. As he struggles to break free from his past and to forge his own destiny, the fatefulpossession of the Ring passes to him. He acquires his father's sword, kills the dragon Fafner, and wakes the sleeping Brünnhilde. As the Wanderer (Wotan in disguise) tries to bar his way, he brushes him aside and, in so doing, breaks his spear, thereby destroying his power. "Jossi Wieler and Sergio Morabito turend out the funniest Siegfried I have ever experienced. Lisa Gasteen's voice was lovely and communicative…Wolfgang Schöne made a marvelous Wanderer while Heinz Göhrig created a more sympathetic Mime than usual. His singing was excellent."
