Summary
The first cycle of Der Ring des Nibelungen, in which a dwarf steals gold from the Rhinedaughters and then makes a ring which gives its owner great power. Meanwhile Wotan, ruler of the gods, searches for a way to pay two giants for building his new fortress, Valhalla. He had promised to give them Freia, goddess of youth and love, but when she leaves with them, the gods begin to age. Wotan searches for another means of payment, and tricks the dwarf into surrendering the ring. The dwarf puts a curse on whoever owns it and the curse strikes immediately
