In this final opera of the Ring cycle, Siegfried leaves Brünnhilde and sets off down the Rhine, where he meets Günther, king of the Gibichung, his sister Gutrune, and their half-brother Hagen, son of Alberich. Conspiring together, the siblings induce Siegfried to drink a magic potion to forget Brünnhilde, then retrieve her that she may marry Günther. This deed accomplished, Hagen then murders Siegfried during a hunt.
