Wagner Retold

Here you'll find retellings of Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle, or its source materials, and even other Wagner opera stories, primarily set as fairy tale style narratives for a younger audience. These all date from around the turn of the 20th century (1882-1915), within living memory of the opera cycle's first premiere, and so share that late Victorian sense of wonder and impending doom.
