Richard Wagner - Der Ring des Nibelungen

The last one is the famous photograph of Wagner and Cosima, hand in hand, gazing rapturously at each other the body language is also telling: It is the only illustration that may tentatively be classified as plate. As for the productions illustrated, several of them offer you the priceless opportunity to enjoy some of the most appalling kitsch that has ever passed for Wagner. These fellows have a gift for parody, one must admit that.

But let me picture it for you. Rozarii Lynch that tried to live up to them Scene 4 from Das Rheingold. In conclusion, it is peculiarly difficult to do justice to this book.

It aims to be nothing more than mere introduction, and as such it has considerable intrinsic merit. Nevertheless, with regard to previous works written or edited by Barry Millington, this one is redundant. To be blunt, and to repeat myself, skip this volume: Either is a better choice for a reasonably priced one-volume introduction. Both cover the same ground as this New Grove selection, yet both have wider scope and greater depth.
