Siegmund and Sieglinde each withhold their own names until the act's climax.
During a raging storm, Siegmund seeks shelter at the house of the warrior Hunding. Hunding is not present, and Siegmund is greeted by Sieglinde, Hunding's unhappy wife. Siegmund tells her that he is fleeing from enemies. After taking a drink of mead, he moves to leave. However, Sieglinde bids him to stay, saying that he can bring no misfortune to the house where ill-luck lives.During their wedding feast, an old man had appeared and plunged a sword into the trunk of the ash tree in the center of the room, which Hunding and his companions had all failed to remove. She expresses her longing for the hero who could draw the sword and save her. Siegmund expresses his love for her and as she strives to understand her recognition of him, she realizes it is in the echo of her own voice, and reflection of her image. When he speaks the name of his father, Walse, she declares that he is Siegmund, and that the Wanderer left the sword for him.Siegmund now easily draws the sword forth, and she tells him she is Sieglinde, his twin sister. He names the blade Nothung. As the Act closes he calls her 'bride and sister', and draws her to him with passionate fervor.
Wotan is standing on a rocky mountainside with Brunnhilde, his daughter. He instructs Brunnhilde to protect Siegmund in his coming fight with Hunding. Fricka, Wotan's wife and the guardian of wedlock, arrives demanding the punishment of Siegmund and Sieglinde, who have committed adultery and incest. She knows that Wotan had fathered Siegmund and Sieglinde. Wotan protests that he requires a free hero to aid his plans, but Fricka retorts that Siegmund is not a free hero, but an unwitting pawn of Wotan. Backed into a corner, Wotan promises Fricka that Siegmund is to die.
Fricka leaves. Wotan explains his problems; he had seduced the earth-goddess to learn more of the prophesied doom. Valhalla's army will fail if Alberich should ever use the Ring, which is in Fafner's possession. Using the Tarnhelm the giant has transformed himself into a dragon, lurking in a forest with the Nibelung treasure. Wotan cannot wrest the Ring from Fafner, who is bound to him by contract; he needs a free hero to defeat Fafner in his stead. However, as Fricka pointed out, he can only create thralls to himself. Bitterly, Wotan orders Brunnhilde to obey Fricka and ensure the death of his beloved child Siegmund.
The other Valkyries assemble on the summit of a mountain, each with a dead hero in her saddlebag. They are astonished when Brunnhilde arrives with a living woman. She begs them to help, but they dare not defy Wotan. Brunnhilde decides to delay Wotan as Sieglinde flees. She also reveals that Sieglinde is pregnant by Siegmund, and names the unborn son Siegfried.Wotan arrives in wrath and passes judgment on Brunnhilde. The other Valkyries flee. Brunnhilde begs mercy of Wotan for herself. She recounts the courage of Siegmund and her decision to protect him, knowing that was Wotan's true desire.
