Brünnhilde

Brünnhilde

The sleep of Brünnhilde

Brünnhilde with her horse, at the mouth of the cave

Brünnhilde stands for a long time dazed and alarmed

Brünnhilde slowly and silently leads her horse down the path to the cave

"Father! Father!
Tell me what ails thee?
With dismay thou art filling thy child!"

BRÜNNHILDE
"I flee for the first time
And am pursued:
Warfather follows close.
.....................
He nears, he nears, in fury!
Save this woman!
Sisters, your help!"
