Siegfried, the hero, son of Sieglinde, grew to be a youth of dauntless courage. Setting out to slay a dragon who guarded the Ring of the Nibelung, Siegfried fashioned himself a wonderful sword and descended into the murky cave in which the treasure was hidden. Then, with the ring secured, he passed through the magic fire to awaken the Valkyrie, Brunnhilde.
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.
