This seminal operatic work by German legend Richard Wagner was the first in the four-part masterwork Der Ring des Nibelung. Drawn from Norse mythology, Wagner's ambitious and sweeping epic relates the story of Wotan, king of the Gods, and a promise he makes to a citizen of the Rhine. The vengeful and awesome power of the Gods is unleashed on the stage, immortalized by Wagner's unparalleled music. Since its 1869 debut, Wagner's immense artistic scope and vision has proved to make the piece legendary in the Western repertoire.
