Wagner wanted to create the perfect synthesis of music and drama and assumed total creative control of the project which was to take him 26 years to complete, with frequent interruptions. He introduced numerous innovations, not least the sheer scale of the project—typically a complete performance will last in excess of 15 hours, spread over four evenings. No other opera matches the scale or ambition of the Ring.
The Mariinsky Theatre has close connections with Wagner and his music. The composer conducted at the theatre and was even offered the post of Music Director. It is also believed to be the first place where any of the music from the Ring was performed. Since Valery Gergiev became Music Director of the Mariinsky, Wagner's music has once again become a core part of the theatre's repertoire, both in St Petersburg and on tour. In this act, Nothung, the magical sword that is a weapon for good and justice makes its appearance.
Act II introduces us to the philosophy of the god-man, the physical connections between the earthly and the heavenly, the developing idea of freedom from the control of the gods and from the power of gold. Here Wagner also gives us a sign of the great reconciliation to come, for, as Elias Canetti observed, fire has the power to unify everything in an instant.
Then Wagner increasingly emphasises the leitmotifs for symbols—Fate, the Sword, the Spear. These two possess a compelling beauty, although most of the motifs have undeniable musical appeal. Researchers have noted that the motifs come in composite pairs, in counterpoint, they combine and converse—and always under the influence of the overarching Wagnerian drama.
The appearance of Hunding is a particular high point, but it cannot be considered the culmination; rather it embodies the purely Wagnerian theme of invasion. Both these symphonic sketches are feats of virtuosity: displaying innovative techniques of form and structure, the music continually mutating while maintaining its links with the primary melodic material. During this period the composer responded little to current events and was scarcely disturbed by the Crimean War. He took no obvious interest in any of the new developments in contemporary music, whether by Verdi, Offenbach or Dargomyzhsky.
And it would have been hardfor him to imagine the vast generation of Wagnerians that appeared in the first half of the s. The melody of indescribable beauty and profound sorrow, the warmth of the music and its arresting humanity make our hearts skip a beat. For the umpteenth time, we see, hear and feel that the purpose of art is to prolong the farewell.

Alone, the stranger remembers his father and the magical sword Nothung. He thinks about Sieglinde and feelings of love stir in him. Sieglinde returns and tells him how an old man in a dark cloak once thrust his sword into the trunk of the ash. Once again she asks her guest to reveal his name.
He confesses that he is Siegmund. Sieglinde is overcome by an extraordinary emotion: she has found her long-lost brother.
