Synopsis: "Thingol and his spouse Melian of the people of the Valar [mezzo-soprano] interrogate Beren. Thingol declares that Beren can only wed his daughter if Beren will bring him a Silmaril from Morgoth's crown, and Beren promises that when he next looks on Thingol's face, he will hold a Silmaril in his hand. Melian foresees disaster."
