Houston Grand Opera presents Siegfried
The third opera in Wagner's epic Ring cycle, Siegfried stands on its own as great spectacle, masterful storytelling, and electrifying music.
The conniving dwarf Mime has raised the naïve and fearless boy Siegfried in hopes that he will obtain the all-powerful ring and turn it over to him. But with the help of a mysterious Wanderer - the god Wotan in disguise - Siegfried reforges his father's powerful sword and uses it to claim the ring for himself. The balance of power is changing: the power of the gods continues to diminish as Siegfried's journey culminates in the discovery of his destined bride, Brünnhilde.
A co-production of Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia, Valencia, and Maggio Musicale, Florence.
