|1. The Ring (Overture)|
Three Rhinemaidens are swimming in me depths of the river Rhine, as the night-dwarf enters. The Rhinemaidens tease him as he tries to catch them. Then a ray of sunlight shines on the pile of gold. The Rhinemaidens tell the dwarf that if someone should forswear all love, he would be able to forge an all- powerful ring of the Rhinegold. They tell this to the dwarf because they think, he would never forswear love, as he was so lustily chasing them. But they are wrong: mad with despair, the dwarf forswears and curses all love and he steals the Rhinegold and flees before the shocked Rhinemaidens can take any action.
Wotan (king of the gods) bargains with the Giants to build the glory of Valhalla and risks the God's immortality. To appease the Giants and ensure eternal youth, Wotan steals the Rhinegold and the ring from the evil dwarf and gives it to the Giants.
In a fury, the dwarf bitterly spits forth the ring's unforgiving curse. Immediately the giants start a fight over how to divide the treasure. One Giant kills the other gets all the treasure. The power of the curse horrifies Wotan.
After the Giant has left the gods turn to greet their new home. The god of Thunder summons a lighting bolt to clear away the fog and a Rainbow Bridge spreads out. Wotan is silent for a moment, as though seized by a novel idea. He christens the fortress Valhalla.
As the gods are walking the Rainbow Bridge to Valhalla...)

Round Table, and loyalty. The names of some of the Knights of the Round Table were: Sir Kay,
