New National Theatre Tokyo closes their 2016/2017 season with Siegfried, the third episode of Richard Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen. Siegfried recounts the coming of age of Siegfried, the son of Siegmund and Sieglinde. Raised by Mime, Alberich's brother, Siegfried re-forges the magical sword Nothung, defeats Fafner who has transformed into a dragon and awakens Brünnhilde, sleeping on a rock. Greer Grimsley’s interpretation of Wotan has also brought him to multiple esteemed international opera houses; some highlights of this include his portrayal of the role with Deutsche Oper Berlin; Teatro Comunale di Bologna, under Gatti’s baton; Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona; the Nikikai Opera Foundation in Tokyo; The Metropolitan Opera; and Seattle Opera.
