The Rhinegold = Das Rheingold by Burton D Fisher( Book )
5 editions published between 1968 and 1994 in French and German and held by 83 libraries worldwide
Richard Wagner's vast "Der Ring des Nibelungen" cycle comprises four full-length operas ("Das Rheingold", "Die Walkure", "Siegfried" and "Gotterdammerung") and is arguably the most extraordinary achievement in the history of opera. His own libretto to the operas is an intricate system of metric patterns, imaginative metaphors and alliteration, combining to produce the music in text. This text provides a line-by-line translation of the first of the opera librettos - "Das Rheingold"--A running commentary on the action and signals as to when each leitmotif appears. Each leitmotif is a musical theme or motif which denotes a character, emotion, object or event, and these musical themes were used by Wagner as a unifying force within his dramas. The listener following the opera with the libretto is able to pinpoint the various themes (in the Ring cycle there are 81 leitmotifs) and so increase understanding of the drama. Sabor's translation seeks to preserve the original metre and elucidate the complexities of Wagner's intricate libretto. The volume is supplemented with scene-by-scene synopses, short discussions of each leitmotif, a discography, videography and bibliography. Translations of the other three operas and a companion volume are available, both separately and in a boxed set. The companion volume offers essays on the meaning of the Ring, on Wagner's turbulent and fascinating life, his varied literary sources from the world of myth, the genesis of the cycle and its performance history over the last 120 years

Richard Wagner, geboren am 22.5.1813 in Leipzig; gestorben am 13.2.1883 in Venedig. Wagner begann 1831 an der Universität Leipzig ein Musikstudium. Im Sommer 1834 engagierte ihn eine Operntruppe als Dirigenten nach Magdeburg; dort verliebte er sich in die Schauspielerin Minna Planer: er folgte ihr nach Königsberg, wo sie 1836 heirateten; vor ihren Gläubigern flüchteten sie nach Paris, wo sie von 1839 bis 1842 in großer Not lebten. Die triumphale Uraufführung des "Rienzi" am 20.10.1842 in Dresden legte den Grundstein zu seinem Ruhm. 1843 wird er zum kgl. sächs. Hofkapellmeister ernannt. Bis 1858 wohnte er in Zürich. 1864 errang er die Gunst des bayrischen Königs Ludwig II., der seine Schulden bezahlte und ihn auch weiterhin unterstützte. 1872 ging er nach Bayreuth und legte den Grundstein für das Festspielhaus, das 1876 eingeweiht wurde. Zur Wiederherstellung seiner Gesundheit zog Wagner 1882 nach Venedig, wo er 1883 starb
