Wagner: Siegfried / Sir Simon Rattle

Wagner: Siegfried / Sir Simon Rattle
Adventure Comedy in a Fairy Tale Forest

February 8th 2023, 8:00 PM - Elbphilharmonie, Great Hall

For a colossal work like Wagner's "Siegfried" you need a colossal cast. It's a good thing that Sir Simon Rattle and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra have the right crew of singers at their side: For what could make the hearts of Wagner fans accustomed to Bayreuth beat faster than names like Simon O'Neill, Anja Kampe or Michael Volle? With Georg Nigl, Peter Hoare and Franz-Josef Selig, three other leading character actors are also in the cast, while Elbphilharmonie focal artist Barbara Hannigan once again demonstrates her versatility as Waldvogel. The play, the third part of the "Ring of the Nibelungs," is a cross between a fairy tale and a comedy, and offers plenty of opportunity: in it, young Siegfried can no longer stay in the home of his nasty foster father Mime. With the freshly repaired sword Notung in his hand, he storms out into the forest to learn to fear the dragon Fafner. Instead, however, the language of the animals opens up to him, and new, much more exciting adventures take their course...
