Summary
The second opera of the Ring cycle, "Die Walkure" tells how Wotan, chief of the gods, foreseeing their doom because they must respect the power of the magic ring and its curse, creates a band of warrior maidens to protect Valhalla. By a mortal woman, Wotan also sires two children, Siegmund and Sieglinde, whose selfless acts are to return the ring to the Rhine maidens. When Siegmund and Sieglinde must perish because they have run afoul of the goddess Fricka, Wotan sends his favorite Walkure, Brunnhilde, to do the deed. In disobedience, Brunnhilde vainly attempts to protect Siegmund and Sieglinde, for which she is banished to perpetual sleep on a flaming rock until rescued by a hero
