About the Author

Richard Wagner (1813 - 83) was a composer who drew inspiration from Christian and Nordic mythology, as well as the philosophy of Schopenhauer, to pioneer dramatically new forms of music. His concept of the "Total Artwork" led to the construction of the Bayreuth Festspielhaus, an opera house he designed specifically for productions of his own operas. He also wrote widely on music and art. His operas include Tristan und Isolde, Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg and the four parts of Der Ring des Nibelungen.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
All the ENO opera guides are well written and illuminate one's knowledge and therefore enjoyment of the opera. This guide is no exception and it is so little to pay for a key to interpretation.
