Notes & Reviews:
First performed as a cycle of four operas in 1876, Wagner's visionary Der Ring des Nibelungen is one of the greatest works of art. Centred around a ring which offers its bearer ultimate power and the attempts of various people to acquire it, the Ring cycle explores the relationship between love and earthly power and the themes of yearning and loss, all within a setting of meieval legend. The Prologue Das Theingold depicts the theft and subsequent surrender of the ring forged from the Rhinemaidens' gold by the Nibelung dwarf Alberich.
