In this drama, the human element takes center stage as a young man struggles to find his identity and destiny in a world of deceitful gods, dragons, dwarves, and the scariest monster of all – love. Filled with fantastic yet thoroughly recognizable characters, Siegfried is a towering challenge for the performers, orchestra, and production team.
