The third part of the epic saga

Siegfried, born from sibling love, feels no fear. He fights to win back the ring forged from the Rheingold, standing in the way of Wotan, the lord of the gods. The mythical Siegfried is all-powerful: he forges an unbeatable sword, slays a dragon, understands birdsong, and wakes a sleeping beauty with a kiss.

Siegfried’s fairy-tale story is set in today’s restless mental landscape, where the value of humanity is measured in the size of steroid-pumped muscles. Premiere is 24th of March.

Daniel Brenna is the fearless hero of the title in the epic’s third installment. Johanna Rusanen-Kartano sings Brünnhilde and Tommi Hakala is the Wanderer, with FNO Principal Conductor Hannu Lintu on the podium.

Live stream of Siegfried at FNO Stage24 video service on Saturday 22 April 2023 at 2 pm. The live stream is produced by the Finnish broadcasting company Yle in cooperation with the Finnish National Opera and Ballet.
