Act 1

Katie Derham presents Act 1 of Wagner's Siegfried - the third part of the Ring Cycle - in a performance given at the Bastille Opera. With tenor Torsten Kerl as Siegfried.

Katie Derham presents Wagner's Siegfried Act 1 - the third part of the Ring Cycle - recorded live at the Bastille Opera in Paris.
Siegfried begins to understand why he keeps returning to his foster father, the Nibelung dwarf, Mime despite the fact that he despises him: he wants to know his real parentage. Mime recognises that Siegfried is "the one who does not know fear" and that unless he can instil fear in him, Siegfried will kill him in accordance with the Wanderer's prediction. Followed after 3.30pm by a Swiss rarity.
