Notes:

by bmadden714 (WorldCat user on 2007-04-30)

Wagner's Ring cycle--"The Ring of Nibelung"--has proven to be one of the most enduring of operatic spectacles, and the best writing on the subject has here been brought together in a collection that includes article by George Bernard Shaw, Georg Solti, and Andrew Porter; excerpts from Wagner's own letter's and works and discourses by over thirty other writers. Here is a complete coverage of the tetralogy of the Ring--Das Rheingold, Die Walkure, Siegfried, and Gotterdammerung--in essay's on Wagner's intention, the theory behind it, its interpretation, artistic backgrounds, historical influences, literary sources, musical architecture, modern stagings, the Ring in English, and various styles of performance We are living in the midsts of a worldwide Wagner Renaissance, and this anthology will enough and enlighten both performers and fans of Wagner's timeless peros, while serving as a superb introduction to this new to the Ring.--Back cover
