Das Nibelungenlied
« on: 22 Apr 2015, 07:40 pm »
I have subscribed to all 4 operas in the Ring (in 2 weeks) next year.  While I was walking around in downtown mall in Charlottesville, Va I came across this book The Lay of the Niebelungs and bought it.  I figured I should know the whole story to appreciate the bit that Wagner borrowed for his Ring Cycle.  The essay that prefixes the Lay is quite illuminating.  I now see that the whole book is on line.

Enjoy the story.
