Finally, the women in Worms are taking their fate into their own hands.

On 15 July 2020, it was planned, the grand premiere of hildensaga. ein Königinnendrama by Ferdinand Schmalz at the Nibelungen Festspiele in Worms. He has written a great piece of theatre to give the Hilden their fate into their own hands. For in the saga of the Hilden, the queens betrayed by the Nibelungen make a pact with one another. The goddesses of fate have arranged it to finally change the course of history. In the end, Krimhild and Brunhild go on a relentless hunt for those that have lied to, betrayed and defiled them - in the forest that is their cathedral. With his own particular delight in wit and word and double meaning, Ferdinand Schmalz has written a firework display of reckoning for these two queens. With the premiere on 15 July 2020, the proud Hilden would finally have stepped out of the shadow of their suffering in front of Worms Cathedral. But fate has made them wait another two years because the Nibelungen Festival 2020 had to be cancelled due to the pandemic. But in 2022 the time will finally come.
