The peaceful beauty of the forest enchants Siegfried. He listens to the song of a bird, who tells him of a beautiful woman named Brünnhilde, asleep on a mountain encircled by a ring of magic fire. Only one who has no fear can pass through the flames and awaken her from sleep. Siegfried immediately sets out to find her.
*****Music performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra, conducted by Eugene Ormandy.
