Dive deep into excerpts from Richard Wagner’s The Ring of the Nibelung, a series of four epic music dramas based on Germanic folktales. The Ring cycle highlights the stories and struggles of gods, mortal heroes and mythical creatures, the Valkyries. The Nibelung (dwarf) is Alberich, who creates a ring using gold stolen from the Rhine River.
