Yet, they join as man and wife. Wotan knows he must kill Siegmund for the violation of the laws of matrimony. But unable to bear the agony of the deed, he sends the Valkyrie Brunnhilde, in his place. Brunnhilde takes mercy on the two lovers. In anguish, Wotan causes Siegmund's death by shattering his sword in battle. Brunnhilde is made mortal as punishment for betraying Wotan, and he surrounds her with a wall of flame that can only be broken by a hero. A wall of flame.

The scene is outside the castle, residence of Otello, governor of the island, facing the port. It is night. A furious storm churns the sea, and a crowd of Venetian citizens and soldiers helplessly watch while the ship of the Moor Otello desperately tries to make it into port. Only Iago, one of Otello's men, does not participate in the general apprehension for the safety of his leader: he hates Otello, because Otello has promoted Cassio captain instead of him; he meditates revenge. The crowd is jubilant as Otello finally lands safely and announces that the Turkish fleet has been defeated. When the Moor enters the castle, the fireworks start and all drink to his victory. In the midst of the rejoicing, Iago starts to weave the scheme that will lead to his commander's downfall: he treacherously insinuates to Roderigo, who had revealed to Iago his love for Otello's wife, Desdemona, that Captain Cassio also feels the same affection for the woman. Then Iago gets Cassio drunk, and incites a fight between the two men, but the dangerous duel that starts between them is stopped by Montano. However, the peacemaker is wounded by Cassio. Iago sounds the alarm, swelling the episode out of proportion until the crowd is in tumult. Called back by the shouts and noise, Otello, falsely informed by Iago, punishes Cassio and demotes him. This is a first victory for Iago, who exults21214ocn061858902visu19800.37Wagner, RichardSiegfriedDramaTelevision adaptationsFilm adaptationsThe sword Notung, which Mime has not been able to repair for Siegfried, is re-forged on an anvil left by Wotan.

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. When Brünnhilde sacrifices herself upon Siegfried's pyre, Hagen attempts to steal the magic ring, but is thwarted as the waters of the Rhine rise, washing over everything, and the Rhine maidens retrieve their treasure, as Valhalla appears in flames above16115ocn004288304rcrd19700.39Strauss, RichardDer RosenkavalierMusical settingsOperasSchwarzkopf samlingen16010ocn260005326visu19780.66Wagner, RichardTannhäuserDramaFilm adaptations"Götz Friedrich's 1970s production scandalized the Bayreuth old guard while revealing Tannhäuser's revolutionary qualities to a new age of Wagner lovers.
