History

Siegfried

Siegfried, composed between 1858-1871, is Richard Wagner’s third installment of the Ring Cycle. The four operas in the series include
Das Rheingold (The Rhinegold), Die Walküre (The Valkyrie), Siegfried and Götterdämmerung (Twilight of the Gods).

It is the coming-of- age story of the ultimate hero and his role in the struggle for supreme power. The title role is especially daunting. He is portrayed as an impetuous teenager who knows no fear, and his vocal lines encompass a vast musical range—from heroic to reflective to tender and romantic.

This three-act epic is set in mythological times, when gods and other creatures contend for dominion over the earth.

Orphaned at birth, Siegfried learns his true identity and fulfills his destiny to repair the Nothung sword, kill the dragon and eventually jump through a circle of fire to become Brünnhilde’s savior and lover.

Siegfried’s role is one of the most difficult in opera for a tenor as he sings for almost four hours within a wide range of dynamics, from the heroic to the reflective to the romantic.

The Met’s production of Siegfried in its 2018–19 season featured minimal otherworldly landscapes with digital imagery to achieve a modern visual interpretation of the composer’s masterpiece.

 It premiered at the Bayreuth Festspielhaus on August 16, 1876, as part of the first complete performance of The Ring Cycle.

The Met’s landmark production, directed by Robert Lepage, premiered over the course of the 2010–11 and 2011–12 seasons. The DVD release of its Live in HD presentation won the 2013 Grammy Award for Best Opera Recording.
