Summary
In this final opera of the Ring cycle, Siegfried leaves Brunnhilde and sets off down the Rhine, where he meets Gunther, king of the Gibichung, his sister Gutrune, and their half-brother Hagen, son of Alberich. Conspiring together, the siblings induce Siegfried to drink a magic potion to forget Brunnhilde, then retrieve her that she may marry Gunther. This deed accomplished, Hagen then murders Siegfried during a hunt. When Brunnhilde sacrifices herself upon Siegfried's pyre, Hagen attempts to steal the magic ring, but is thwarted as the waters of the Rhine rise, washing over everything, and the Rhine maidens retrieve their treasure, as Valhalla appears in flames above
