Program Notes

Das Rheingold tells the story of the building of the new home of the gods, Valhalla. The final scene of the opera shows the completed castle gleaming in the distance. Donner, god of thunder, creates a rainbow to serve as passage to it, and the gods majestically proceed across. As they make their way to Valhalla, which they have gained through a great deal of trickery and intrigue, Loge, the god of fire watches them with foreboding, while from the Rhine below the lamentations of the maidens, who have been robbed of their treasure, are heard.
