Richard Wagner has fascinated every generation of opera-lovers for over a century, and a mass of literature has interpreted and reinterpreted not only his character, but also the components of the great music dramas that are still some of the most captivating and complex operas in the international repertory today. In this excellent study, Garten examines the cultural and historical sources of these operas: the myths and legends that Wagner employed, in which much of his works’ interest, other than the purely musical, can be found. Garten’s study also shows how legends of the old Nordic gods, the troubadours and Minnesingers, the quest for the grail, as well as stories taken from folklore and history, were transformed into the theatrical mythology of Wagner’s music dramas.
