A man grows up: he forges a legendary sword. Uses it to bifurcate an anvil, murder his foster father and a dragon. That brings him the ring. Finally at the end he meets a woman: Brünnhilde! An opera with a happy ending. Actually. But the end of puberty is never all that happy - the things to come will be terrible ... The best Wagner singers in the world in the Munich "Ring" production, staged by David Alden.
