Classical music inspired by fire
The powerful 'Magic fire music' from Act III of Wagner's epic opera, Die Walkure can be heard as Wotan kisses his beloved Brünnhilde and sends her into an enchanted sleep. He summons the Norse demigod of fire to ignite a protective circle of flames and departs, as the curtain falls.
