Ring Of The Nibelungs

Drama Miniseries / 2 x 2 hours

An epic fantasy starring Academy Award® nominee Max von Sydow (Robin Hood), Julian Sands (Gotham), Kristanna Løken (Burn Notice), Benno Fürmann (Joyeux Noël), Samuel West (Mr. Selfridge) and Alicia Witt (House of Lies).

 

Raised as a tamer of fire and the elements by the blacksmith Eyvind (Max von Sydow), Prince Siegfried (Benno Fürmann), is unaware of his true heritage. He wins the heart of Brunhild (Kristanna Loken), the Valkyrie warrior queen, slays the dragon Fafnir, and claims the dragon’s gold, cursed by the mystic Nibelungs.

 

Siegfried entrusts the treasure to Burgundy’s King Gunther (Samuel West), coveted by the King’s adviser Hagen (Julian Sands), who steals the gold with black magic, making Siegfried fall in love with Princess Kriemhild (Alicia Witt), and forget Brunhild. The curse then spins an expanding web of betrayal, deception and greed.
