This first opera of the famous "Ring Cycle" recounts the legend of the Rhinegold, a magic treasure stolen from the rocky depths of the river Rhine by Alberich the Nibelung, a greedy dwarf, who forges it into a ring. From him the gods of Valhalla must wrest it in order to save the goddess Freia from two giants.
In dramatic narrative and colorful pictures, enriched by musical quotations from the most famous scenes, these unique little volumes will delight all lovers of opera.
