Götterdämmerung by Richard Wagner( Recording )

41 editions published between 1952 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Siegfried and Brünnhilde are the ideal mythical couple: the greatest hero the world has ever seen, born of a divine father, and a fearless warrior maiden of equally noble ancestry. As he takes off for more heroic adventures at the beginning of this final part of Wagner's epic Ring cycle, he even gives her his all-powerful ring as reminder of their love. The next time they meet, he's about to marry another woman--and swears he has never seen Brünnhilde. The culmination of one the grandest theatrical journeys, this opera features some of Wagner's most ravishingly beautiful and emotionally shattering music. Margaret Harshaw and Wolfgang Windgassen are the ill-fated couple, with Kurt Böhme as the evil mastermind Hagen

Deborah Voigt brings sumptuous vocalism and dramatic presence to the title role of Strauss and Hofmannsthal's re-imagination of the Helen myth. Set in the aftermath of the Trojan War, the story is based on the premise that the Helen who came to Troy was a phantom, while the real, faithful one was spirited away. After the war, she is reunited with her husband, Menelas, sung by Torsten Kerl. Diana Damrau is Aithra, the sorceress who helps Helen regain Menelas's love, and Wolfgang Brendel sings Altair, a desert chieftain who falls in love with Helen. Fabio Luisi conducts the ravishing score

The legendary Birgit Nilsson sings Isolde, one of her greatest roles, in her second Met season. Karl Liebl is Tristan, the man she loves--and the best friend of the man she is forced to marry. Jerome Hines is the sorrowful King Marke and Irene Dalis sings Isolde's stalwart companion, Brangäne

Wagner's mystical opera makes extraordinary demands on the conductor, but James Levine is renowned for the special affection and authority he brings to this transcendent work. The music shimmers and glows, evoking the legendary world of the Knights of the Holy Grail and the pure fool who brings healing power to the land. Peter Hofmann stars as the questing title hero, Jerome Hines sings the wise old man, Gurnemanz, and Mignon Dunn is the voluptuous Kundry, whose erotic temptations almost ensnare the young hero

The beginning of Das Rheingold takes the listener right into the mystical atmosphere of the Ring cycle. Out of the darkness, from the depths of the River Rhine, come the mysterious notes that signal the birth of life itself. Soon we're in the middle of a rousing tale of ambition, greed, promises made and broken, of gods, dwarfs, and giants. They all desire one thing--the magical Rhine gold that bestows unlimited power over the world. Hermann Uhde is Wotan, lord of the gods, Ramon Vinay sings his cunning advisor Loge, and the young James McCracken, before his days as a dramatic tenor, shines as the god Froh

Lohengrin: "Nie sollst Du mich befragen!" Das fordert der geheimnisvolle Ritter, der zum Schutze für Elsa, Herzogin von Brabant, in einem von einem Schwan gezogenen Boot angefahren kommt. Natürlich verliebt sich Elsa in den großen Kämpfer, und natürlich will sie nach ihrer Heirat (jawohl, mit dem unsterblichen "Treulich geführt"-Brautmarsch!)wissen, wer er ist! Also fragt sie ihn doch, und bewirkt damit, dass Lohengrin, der Sohn Parzivals, sie verlassen muss.

Das Rheingold Vorabend zum Bühnenfestspiel "Der Ring des Nibelungen" by Richard Wagner( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Das Rheingold" von Richard Wagner (1813 bis 1883) ist eine der vier Opern, die den "Ring des Nibelungen" ergeben. Die hier vorliegende Aufnahme von den Bayreuther Festspielen 1952 gehört zu den Referenz-Aufnahmen des Werkes und wird immer wieder lobend erwähnt. Es singen Werner Uhde, Ira Malaniuk, Werner Faulhaber, Wolfgang Windgassen, Erich Witte u.v.a. unter der Leitung des viel zu früh verstorbenen Joseph Keilberth. Das "Rheingold" aus den Tiefen des Rheins kann nur der beherrschen, der auf die Liebe verzichtet, der Zwerg Alberich. Er schmiedet aus dem Rheingold einen Ring, mit dem er das Volk der Nibelungen unterwirft und knechtet. Als Alberich von Gott Wotan mittels einer List den Ring abgenommen bekommt, verflucht Alberich den Ring und seine Träger. Klingt bekannt? Nun ja, es ist wahr, der "Herr der Ringe" nutzt die Ringmythologie Wagners. Historische Gesamtaufnahme von den Bayreuther Festspielen aus dem Jahre 1952 unter der umjubelten Leitung von Joseph Keilberth

Hermann Uhde is the malevolent Don Pizarro
