Ring of the Nibelung Story Map
A colorful, laminated guide to the Ring story, created by Martin Kirschen. The map locations are based on the libretto and stage directions.
Insight into The Ring of the Nibelung is rooted in understanding the desires of Alberich and Wotan that guide their actions to possess the golden Ring, which evolves from being a symbol of love’s renunciation, to one of ruthlessness, to one of compassion – thus enabling a new order to begin.

Richard Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen
Conceived and written over a period of more than 25 years, Wagner’s Ring cycle is an epic musical journey of four operas: Das Rheingold, Die Walküre, Siegfried, and Götterdämmerung. Its story of gods, dwarves, and men and the quest for an all-powerful ring was inspired by many sources, including 13th-century Icelandic writings and the medieval German Nibelungenlied. The complete cycle was first seen at the inaugural Bayreuth Festival in 1876. The Met’s landmark production, directed by Robert Lepage, premiered over the course of the 2010–11 and 2011–12 seasons. The DVD release of its Live in HD presentation won the 2013 Grammy Award for Best Opera Recording.
