Inside the Music


Music Director Alain Altinoglu guides you through the epic score of Siegfried

The realm of the gods from Das Rheingold is fading, the storm of Die Walküre has settled: it's time for the adventure of Siegfried! In the third part of Der Ring des Nibelungen, an epic world unfolds where birds can talk, dragons must be defeated, and fair maidens are awakened with a kiss. What music did Richard Wagner create for these highly cinematic scenes? How does he, with increasingly complex leitmotifs, look back and forward to the other parts of the tetralogy? And what evolution did he undergo as a composer, from the first sketches of this opera to the final bar line 15 years later?

A monumental work like Siegfried calls for a grand introduction. With his infectious enthusiasm and sense of humor, Music Director Alain Altinoglu reveals the secrets of this score during an accessible lecture, in which he illustrates his musical insights at the piano. Due to the overwhelming success of the previous editions, he now welcomes you in our Main Hall!
