Siegfried is an innocent young man who grew up in isolation and has never felt fear. When he comes across the sleeping Brünnhilde and discovers his feelings for a woman he experiences a panic attack. To love a woman is a task he finds daunting and he calls for his mother -twice!! But she is not only a woman she is the ‘Feminine’ in himself and in the whole work.

Act III: “Selige Oede auf sonniger Hoh’!” & “Das ist kein Mann!”

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
