The Gods entering Valhalla - the end of "Das Rheingold" - the first of the 4 "Ring" Operas.
The Giants, Fafner and Fasolt, make off with Freia, the Goddess of Love, Beauty and Youth. (Das Rheingold) (You really should look at my post a few weeks ago - with the Anna Russell explanation of "The Ring".)
Here are our "Giants"....this is why they "might be Giants"....hard to walk like that! A-ha-ha!
Even the little items have been specially created for SF Opera! For "Siegfried" - here is Rheingold Bier....just what Mime and Siegfried drink outside their trailer!
Mime....the "evil Dwarf" - who raised Siegfried..... portrayed by the wonderful singer and actor - David Cangelosi! A funny and charming guy! (And, he likes my coffee!)
Siegfried and Nothung (his magical sword)....in rehearsal.
Mime in his trailer...(the Rheingold Beer is just a little to the left and out of the shot....
The set for Götterdämmerung - ACT II.
One MUST have a sense of humour about this......
Still, it means a lot to me.... of all the Operas in the world (and there are many) - there is only ONE "Ring" - and it doesn't come along all that often!
So, I am enjoying every minute!
