Wagner’s music captured Germany’s imagination in the 19th century, much as Britten’s would England’s in the 20th. In the museum devoted to the composer in Bayreuth, one can find an entire room full of all sorts of Wagner collectibles, ranging from figurines to playing cards. There were even Wagner trading cards – they came in packages of bouillon, six cards for each opera. The public found every rumor about the composer fascinating, especially his purported predilection for silk underwear.

His celebrity would have been impossible had he not been an overwhelmingly important – and controversial – artistic figure. His 13 operas, 9 of them now repertory pieces, changed the face of music and elevated opera to the level the symphony had occupied since Beethoven. But Wagner also churned out polemic after polemic, essays which often espoused radical ideas and, especially in light of the direction Germany took in the 20th century, distasteful and disturbing opinions. He abandoned more traditional subjects for serious opera – history, classical mythology, and the like – turning instead to Norse mythology and the Germanic epics of the Middle Ages. Der Ring des Nibelungen embodies all of this – his ideals for opera, his beliefs about music, and his exploration of the roots of German culture.
