Nibelungs - but with another text and another melody

by Barbara Bürk and Clemens Sienknecht

Premieres 28/09/2019


After »Effi Briest« and »Anna Karenina« Rock Antenna Walhalla presents the brand-new hit of the Valkyries: The Song of the Nibelungs! "In Worms by the Rhine, three kings amid their warriors did live. In these lands proud knights were to serve, with heroic honour throughout their life, until miserably they died of two noble women’s strife." Experience the famous family saga of Kriemhild, Brunhild, Gunter, Gernot, Giselher, Ute, Hagen, Etzel, the strong Siegfried, and super-hot minstrel Volker von Alzey. Immerse yourself in story for the ages which divides the greatest of spirits: "Wretched stuff, not worth a shot of powder." (Frederick the Great) / "An exquisite piece of work!" (Goethe) / "Fanciful and embarrassing scam-comedy thanks to stupid chatter of its protagonists." (Marcel Reich-Ranicki) Extreme emotions, great exploits and streams of blood are guaranteed when Barbara Bürk and Clemens Sienknecht go on air with the next episode of their successful radio show.
