: Act III of Wagner's Opera c Götterdämmerung'

Scene I : A wooded place on the Rhine
Scene 2: The Hall of Gunther's
Cast in order of appearance :
Relayed from The Royal Opera House,
Covent Garden
IN THIS ACT the intricate story of The Ring is brought to a close. The ring, made from the gold wrested from the Rhine maidens in The Rhinegold, is now, through a series of adventures, borne on Siegfried's finger, and the curse laid on it by Alberich is about to reach its fulfilment. Deluded Siegfried, wrought upon by Hagen, the son of Alberich, has betrayed Brunnhilde by marrying her to Gunther, and has himself married Gutrune, little knowing that his own death is to be the next step in Alberich's sinister plan to recover the ring.
The first scene is a wild spot by the Rhine, and Siegfried, separated from a hunting party, encounters the Rhine maidens who warn him of his approaching death. The hunters now enter and all rest, drink and converse, until Hagen treacherously spears Siegfried from behind.
In his dying moments, Siegfried remembers his love for Brunnhilde. Siegfried's Funeral March leads into the last scene, the Hall of the Gibichungs. Here, Hagen, in his struggle to get the magic ring from Siegfried's finger, kills Gunther. Brunnhilde appears, Siegfried's funeral pyre is prepared and as it burns she leaps upon it, determined thus to be reunited to Siegfried... The Rhine rises, bringing with it the Rhine maidens who recover the ring, while Hagen plunges in after them only to- meet his death. In the distance Valhalla is seen in flames in final fulfilment of the curse.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
