Edited by Barry Millington and Stewart Spencer. Translated by Stewart Spencer. Commentaries by Barry Millington, Elizabeth Magee, Roger Hollinrake and Warren Darcy. Ring of the Nibelung unlocks the drama of Wagner's epic cycle of gods, giants and heroes, with the acclaimed translation of the original libretto, authoritative commentaries and enchanting illustrations.
