Description

"Siegfried and The Twilight of the Gods: The Ring of the Nibelung - Volume 2" is a modern (2011) English translation of the last 2 operas of German composer Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle combined with 31 beautiful color illustrations by Arthur Rackham. The first two operas of The Ring Cycle are also available in the previously published Volume 1.

This new translation makes it very easy to follow the storylines of "Siegfried" (Siegfried) and "The Twilight of the Gods" (Götterdämmerung), as these translations are written in the modern style of English unlike the 100 year or older translations that are generally available. New fans of The Ring Cycle will be able to focus on the story rather than struggling to interpret the nuances of old English prose. The integrity of Wagner's characters has been preserved and Rackham's illustrations add another dimension, helping bring the characters to life while also portraying the fantastic settings that form the backdrop to the drama.

This book is a must have to accompany listening to, or watching, The Ring Cycle being performed. It's best viewed in color on Kindle for iPhone/iPad/iPod, Android/Blackberry or Kindle for PC or other devices where you can make the most of Rackham's color illustrations. (Standard Kindle is currently black and white only).
