Published by John Calder Publications

English National Opera Guides are ideal companions to the opera, providing stimulating introductory articles together with the complete text of each opera in English and the original

Richard Wagner's fifteen-hour operatic cycle The Ring of the Nibelung ends with this great music drama, Twilight of the Gods

Michael Tanner's essay tackles the scale and meaning not just of this work but of Wagner's whole undertaking, showing that Götterdämmerung is for all its length his fastest-moving drama

Composer Robin Holloway brings the focus of creative genius to his discussion of the score, while Christopher Winkle's article analyses Brunnhilde's concluding monologue

The ninety numbered musical themes of the Thematic Guide are cross-referenced to the other Ring guides
