Hagen's Watch
Hagen's call to the }Götterdam-
Vassals merung)
Haven's Watch occurs in the first Act of The Dusk of the Gods, the last opera of The Ring of the Nibelungs. Siegfried, having been treacherously given the draught of forgetfulness, has forgotten Brynhilda and has plighted his troth with Gutrune ; moreover, he has undertaken to impersonate Gunter, the Lord
! of the Gibichungs and to win Brynhilda for his bride. Siegfried and Gunther have just left for the Valkyrie's Rock for this purpose. Hagen remains behind to guard the Hall. Hagen is the son of Alberich, from whom, in an earlier opera, the Magic Ring was wrested. He fully intends to recover this Ring, of which he knows the power. It was he who drugged the potion given to Siegfried as part of his sinister plot, and as he watches he soliloquises, confessing his villainous intention and prophesying the success of his scheme.
Hagen's Call occurs in the next Act.
Siegfried, disguised as Gunther, has
I been successful in winning Brynhilda for the Gibichung Lord, and as Hagen looks up towards the river he sees the returning ship approaching. He summons the vassals with a hoarse ' Hoi-ho and discordant blasts on his cow-horn. The wild figures of the clansmen appear in answer to the call, asking for what purpose they have been summoned and declaring themselves ready for the fray they are expecting. Hagen undeceives them and with sinister joviality assures them that all they are called for is to assemble in welcoming their Lord, who brings back his newly won bride, and Siegfried who is to wed Gutrune.
In the opera the vassals sing in chorus' but in this version their grotesque music is transferred to the orchestra.

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.
