Acd Seigfried 2400 900
Richard Wagner


The hero Siegfried reforges his father’s shattered sword, embarking on a quest for the greatest prize of all – the love of the valkyrie Brünnhilde, who lies trapped in a ring of fire.

We return to fully staged Wagner and take another step on our journey to the Ring with this remarkably funny and exuberant third instalment of Wagner’s epic cycle.


The Sunday Times

Longborough’s ambitious new Ring cycle began with critically acclaimed performances of Das Rheingold in 2019 (“both epic and intimate” – Opera Magazine) and Die Walküre in 2021 (“as fine Wagner as could be wished” – ★★★★ The Guardian). We will stage Götterdämmerung in 2023, building to the full cycle of Der Ring des Nibelungen in 2024.
