Audio Introduction to SIEGFRIED

Jonathan Dean here, excited to talk about Siegfried later on this summer. (My pre-performance talks will be held in McCaw Hall's lecture hall, not up at Bridal Veil falls in the North Cascades where we went recently looking for Rhine daughters.)

Hallo, Jon!
That's what you get for trying to find the Rheintöchter in "Siegfried"; better luck in Götterdämmerung!

But you hear all sorts of Rhine music in SIEGFRIED Act 2, when he's taking a snooze in the morning sun in the forest and the flickering light in the leaves reminds the orchestra of the light coming down through the waves in the river!

Plus, Julianne Gearhart (Woglinde) is our Forest Bird.
