(Bruennhilde raises her eyes in alarm and sees Siegfried; her gaze remains fixed on him in amazement. Gunther has released her violently trembling hand and, like the others, shows genuine perplexity at her behavior. #164; #87?; #42?)

 

Some Vassals: (#88:) What ails her (:#88)? (#42 end frag:) Is she distraught (:#42)?

 

(Bruennhilde begins to tremble.)

 

Siegfried: (taking a few steps towards Bruennhilde: #154:; #151: [plus a musical figure reminiscent of the grace notes which precede two strongly marked notes which comprise a segment of the “giants’ motif” #26a?]) What troubles Bruennhilde’s features?

 

Bruennhilde: (scarcely able to control herself: #171 [or #156?]) Siegfried … here! … Gutrune …?

 

Siegfried: (#171 [or #156?]) Gunther’s gentle sister: wedded to me, as you are to Gunther (:#171 [or #156?]).

 

Bruennhilde: (with terrible vehemence: #82?:) I (:#82?). (#82?) Gunther? …? You lie! – (#88 vari: She sways and appears about to collapse; Siegfried supports her.) (#87?:) The light is fading from my eyes … (:#87?). (in his arms, looking weakly up at him: #149:) Siegfried … knows me not!

 

Siegfried: (#149:) Gunther, your wife’s unwell! (Gunther joins them.) Wake up, woman! (#orch?:) Here stands your husband (:#orch?)!

 

Bruennhilde: (Bruennhilde sees the ring on Siegfried’s outstretched finger and starts up with terrible violence.) (#19 vari:) Ha! The ring… (#19 vari: [Bruennhilde’s “Triumphant” vari from her debate with Waltraute in T.1.3, &/or as heard in Hagen’s dialogue with Alberich in T.2.1?]) upon his hand! (#51:) He … Siegfried? (#37?)

 

Some Vassals: What is it? What is it?
