Siegfried http://tpr.org en Richard Wagner's "Siegfried," The World's Last Hope http://tpr.org/post/richard-wagners-siegfried-worlds-last-hope <p>In <em>"Siegfried"</em> we return to the origins of Wagner's conception of "The Ring." Before there was an explanation and an event, a plot before a back story.</p><p>These various sketches, fragments and early drafts were separated by a quarter of century from the opera's first performance (1851-1876).<br><br>We recreate the fairytale atmosphere of <em>"Das Rheingold"</em> with a dwarf, a dragon, giants, a singing bird and a boy so innocent he has "never" seen a girl.</p> Fri, 19 Apr 2013 19:42:37 +0000 Ron Moore 9943 at http://tpr.org Richard Wagner's "Siegfried," The World's Last Hope
