about this book

The foremost authority on Wagner presents in this comprehensive volume all that the opera-goer, radio listener, music-love, and confirmed Wagnerite will wish to know about:

The Flying Dutchman
Tristan and Isolde
The Mastersingers of Nuremberg
The Nibelung’s Ring
The Rhinegold
The Valkyrie
The Twilight of the Gods

Newman’s complete grasp of his is clear at every turn, as are his wit and sheer writing ability. He lards his treatment of the stories, texts, and music of the operas and music dramas with biographical and historical materials acquired in the process of completing his numerous book on Wagner the man, including the magisterial Life of Richard Wagner, of which the fourth and final volume was published in 1946.
