Richard Wagner, geboren am 22.5.1813 in Leipzig; gestorben am 13.2.1883 in Venedig. Wagner begann 1831 an der Universität Leipzig ein Musikstudium. Im Sommer 1834 engagierte ihn eine Operntruppe als Dirigenten nach Magdeburg; dort verliebte er sich in die Schauspielerin Minna Planer: er folgte ihr nach Königsberg, wo sie 1836 heirateten; vor ihren Gläubigern flüchteten sie nach Paris, wo sie von 1839 bis 1842 in großer Not lebten. Die triumphale Uraufführung des "Rienzi" am 20.10.1842 in Dresden legte den Grundstein zu seinem Ruhm. 1843 wird er zum kgl. sächs. Hofkapellmeister ernannt. Bis 1858 wohnte er in Zürich. 1864 errang er die Gunst des bayrischen Königs Ludwig II., der seine Schulden bezahlte und ihn auch weiterhin unterstützte. 1872 ging er nach Bayreuth und legte den Grundstein für das Festspielhaus, das 1876 eingeweiht wurde. Zur Wiederherstellung seiner Gesundheit zog Wagner 1882 nach Venedig, wo er 1883 starb
The ring of the Nibelung by Richard Wagner( Book )

253 editions published between 1852 and 2015 in 11 languages and held by 2,765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen is one of the most influential theatrical works ever written. It is a powerful music-drama on a grand scale, a full appreciation of which depends on an understand-ing of exactly what is being sung. Wagner's German was deliber-ately archaic and romantic; until recently, there has been no singing translation which transmits with genuine feeling the complex and literate text, matching the stress and inflection in the score. This translation, commissioned by the English National Opera Company for their highly successful production of The Ring in English, is the work of Andrew Porter, music critic of The New Yorker. The edition includes a German text and Mr. Porter has provided an essay dealing with the problems of translating the work."--Publisher's description
