Presentation

A dark fairy-tale scherzo: prepare for the third part of Der Ring des Nibelungen! 

Many years have passed since the end of Die Walküre. Although Brünnhilde is still in a deep sleep, the child Sieglinde was expecting is now an adolescent. Siegfried is a fearless son of nature who grows up far from civilization in a rough and violent world. When he manages to reforge the sword Nothung, adventure beckons: he defeats the dragon Fafner, comes into possession of the Ring and goes in search of Brünnhilde, an encounter that will transform him profoundly.  

With Siegfried, La Monnaie is continuing its production of Der Ring des Nibelungen, under the musical guidance of Alain Altinoglu and in a new staging by Pierre Audi. Before tragedy erupts in Götterdämmerung, this third part – which includes the sounds of nature, a dragon, a talking bird and a swaggering protagonist – is like a dark fairy-tale scherzo. 

Are you under 30? Then attend this opera on the Young Opera Night (28.9.2024) and we treat you to a personal welcome, a free drink, and a free programme book.
