The final broadcast of the season from the Metropolitan Opera in New York is the fourth and last part of Wagner's Ring cycle. As a pledge of his love, Siegfried gives Brunnhilde the ring he took from the dragon Fafner, while in the hall of the Gibichungs, Hagen prepares a magic potion that will make Siegfried forget Brunnhilde and fall in love with Gutrune. It's a vast saga of passion and vengeance, culminating in an act of self-sacrifice and redemption. Presented by Margaret Juntwait with guest commentator Ira Siff. The two intervals feature backstage interviews and the Met Opera Quiz.
