Siegfried, The Wagner Blade

The worlds FIRST Samoan WAGNERIANS

The GAFA Arts collective (GAC) presents an outstanding lineup of singers and orchestra in a concert performance of Wagner’s opera Siegfried, The Wagner Blade

In Siegfried, the opera’s eponymous hero forges a mighty sword, slays Fafner the dragon, winds up in possession of the cursed Ring and frees the sleeping Brünnhilde from an infernal mountain-top banishment. Siegfried is part three of the Ring Cycle; a timeless Nodic moral drama about love, power and corruption. It will be sung in German, by a cast that whose diverse heritages include Afro Carribean ,English, Hong Kong Chinese and Australian. Notably the cast has a world FIRST, with three Samoan opera singers appearing Aivale Cole, soprano and siblings Tenor, Sani  Muliaumaseali'i and Toto Muliaumaseali'i Bass.

Siegfried, will be an opportunity for the Samoan arts collective only to present this wonderful piece in concert,  but also to explore the mythologies that connect cultures. The sword forged by Siegfried, 'Nothung' finds reflect  in the Samoan sword/knife, the  Nifo Oti. Universal themes such as love, choice, jealousy etc reinforce the humanity that connects the cultural divide.
