    An even greater test came when news arrived that the Saxons planned to attack the Burgundians. The two magicians have been touring all over the world for decades mesmerizing audiences with their unique performances. The second part of the poem is much simpler in structure and deals basically with the conflict between Hagen and Kriemhild and her vengeance against the Burgundians. He is on stage for most of the opera which lasts about four hours.

    And when the springtime came, and the earth renewed its youth, and the fields and woods were decked in beauty, and there was music everywhere, they loved to tell of Idun the spring and her youth giving apples, and of her wise husband Bragi Nature's musician. The great river had overflowed its banks, and no ferries could be found. Even after seeing Gunther's head, Hagen refuses to tell the queen what he has done with the Nibelungen treasure. Siegfried appears with both. Siegfried tells Mime that the teacher has failed: he could not learn the meaning of fear from Fafner. I do not know what happened afterward.

    They became engaged, but Sigurd left to continue his travels. She accepted the proposal and forthwith made preparations for the trip to Hungary. Upon his return, he meets Kriemhild for the first time, and their affections develop during his residence at court. The first contest was to hurl a great spear, so heavy that three of Brunhild's men together could barely lift it. You are riding into a trap. Coming to a cool, rushing brook, they stopped to quench their thirst.

When the guilty Hagen approached the bier, blood flowed anew from Siegfried's wound.

The two eventually became an unlikely duo: an animal trainer and a magician performing an act together. The wretched queen first fell speechless into a swoon, then coming to herself, she screamed aloud, "Hagen committed this bloody crime, and it was Brunhild who urged him to do so!

Wagner makes several changes to the story. The culprit, however, blames all these acts on Kriemhild's own behavior.

With time Kriemhild did indeed marry a noble warrior, only to lose him through treachery. In ancient tales many marvels are told us: of renowned heroes worthy of praise, of great hardship, of joys, festivities, of weeping and lamenting, of bold warriors' battles—now you may hear such marvels told.

The story has a long history and, as a result, contains a number of disparate elements. For example, the word Nibelung itself presents difficulties.
