This is one time where all the hype and hoopla is not only justified, but doesn't come close to suggesting the grandeur of the work on stage. A Triumph.

Why See Lyric Opera of Chicago - Siegfried?

The Third Opera In Wagner's Epic Ring Cycle

The third opera in Richard Wagner's sweeping Der Ring des Nibelungen, Siegfried has it all - tempestuous gods, a fearsome dragon, a courageous hero and a passionate romance. A wondrous celebration of the natural world, youth and young love, the work features the Ring Cycle's most light-hearted and joyful music as it sets up an ultimately tragic conclusion to the breathtaking saga.

Young hero Siegfried knows know fear, and is cautioned by his wizened grandfather to not let his bravery blind him. On his adventures, Siegfried encounters and slays the formidable dragon Fafnir, claiming the beast's godly treasures. When he chances upon sleeping shiledmaiden Brunhilde by a mountaintop fire, he feels afraid for the first time as he falls in love with her instantly. He wakes her with a kiss and the pair embark on a whirlwind love affair.
