~ Jung Siegfried kommt zum Schmiede ~
Siegfried is the third of the four operas that constitute Der Ring des Nibelungen (The Ring of the Nibelung), by Richard Wagner. It received its premiere at the Bayreuth Festspielhaus (Festive Playhouse) on 16 August 1876, as part of the first complete performance of The Ring. This part of the opera is primarily inspired by the story of the legendary hero Sigurd in Norse mythology. The etched Mettlach stein is marked with the Mettlach castle mark and mold number 2394 and dated 1900.
