Inhaltsangabe: Today, more than a century after its first performance, Richard Wagner?s The Ring of Nibelung endures as one of the most significant artistic creations in the history of opera. This monumental work not only altered previously accepted concepts of music and drama but also inspired creative and intellectual efforts far beyond the field of opera.
Previous studies of the Ring have appealed only to those already acquainted in some way with the Wagnerian art. For the uninitiated, Wagner and his landmark creation have seemed forbidding, and those eager to learn about the masterpiece have faced a vast and frequently esoteric body of commentary. Professor Cord addresses the interests of the non-specialist by taking the reader first into Wagner's unique intent, and then through the complete history of the Ring.
Cord, who has attended forty performances of the Ring, considers the conception of the poem, its development into a music-drama exemplifying Wagnerian thought, its introduction to the world, and the reactions and interpretation it elicits.
Über den Autor: William O. Cord is Professor Emeritus of Foreign Languages at Sonoma State University (California). A recipient of Mexico's gold medal for his service to Mexican literature, Dr. Cord now devotes his creative time to writing and lecturing on Richard Wagner and his music dramas.
