Enter the fantasy realm of gods and heroes in Virginia Opera’s Siegfried as Wagner’s The Ring Cycle continues. Family drama remains high as Siegfried, curious about his lineage and oblivious to his power, re-forges his father’s shattered sword and embarks on an epic quest! Along the way, he faces betrayal, tastes victory, and, in the end, finds true love with the Valkyrie, as he rescues her from her fiery prison.
