Filled with rap, pop, R&B and jazz, it's marvellously dense, visually and aurally, and dramatic. And though they flow seamlessly, the scenes-slash-songs, both personal and political are works of art unto themselves.

Brave and hilarious. A charming and deeply moving treasure.

Why See San Francisco Opera - Siegfried?

It's A Love Story

San Francisco Opera's Ring Cycle continues apace with this third instalment returning to Wagner's world of tempestuous Gods and warring monsters a generation on from Die Walkure. Center stage is the young hero Siegfried, who tasked with horrors unknown, has the misfortune to fall heavily in love right in the middle of them.


Concerning the son of doomed lovers Siegmund and Sieglinde, Siegfried is the tale of a child raised with no fear, to be tool to conniving foster father Mime, brother of original ring-bearer Alberich. Mime thirsts for the power of the unholy band, and trains the unwitting Siegfried to defeat the giant Fafner, who now holds the ring and has transformed into a fearsome dragon.

Surely a suicide mission, Siegfried re-forges his father's legendary sword and sets out to slay the beast, whilst discovering the root of fear when he encounters the beautiful Brunnhilde, trapped within a ring of flames and loses his heart forever...
