A brief summary of the opera, followed by a discussion of the hidden meaning.
Read a transcription of the lecture.
Quoted from the lecture:
"Siegfried is the third opera in this series by Richard Wagner. And in this third part we penetrate even deeper into profound Initiatic mysteries whose true meaning and true content had never before been publicly revealed. In this story of Siegfried we see symbolized aspects of the Cosmic Drama that any initiate from any time or place has to live within their own consciousness. This Cosmic Drama is universal. It has always existed, and it will always exist. Very few have seen the Cosmic Drama for what it is, because very few have lived it."
