A friend has mentioned that the title of this blog may attract a certain amount of interest from Wagnerians. If you are a Wagnerian I`m afraid you will find little of interest here: I resolved at the age of 40 to listen to the Ring but now at 47 I have only got half way through and haven`t started Siegfried. However I was sent this from Wikipedia:
Siegfried is the third of the four operas that comprise Der Ring desNibelungen (The Ring of the Nibelung), by Richard Wagner. It receivedits premiere at the Bayreuth Festspielhaus on 16 August 1876, as part ofthe first complete performance of The Ring.Noted excerptsAs with the rest of the Ring, a few excerpts are heard outside the operahouse. The most common heard excerpt from Siegfried is the ForestMurmurs.
That`s about it for Wagner on this blog.
