Dr. Seigfried's new continuing education class on the mythological roots of Richard Wagner’s Ring Cycle will debut in early 2014 at Chicago’s Newberry Library.
This new course examines the roots of Richard Wagner’s Ring of the Nibelung operas in Norse mythology and German literature. Students will read selections from Wagner’s libretti for Das Rheingold, Die Walküre, Siegfried and Götterdämmerung (in English translation) and discover their connection to the Eddas, Nibelungenlied and Saga of the Volsungs. Carefully selected excerpts from a wide range of texts will be discussed, and students will gain an in-depth knowledge of these ancient sources.
