For those preparing to attend Wagner’s four-night masterpiece, or those simply keen to learn more about this magical, multi-layered work, these four 1-hour videos will help explain the plot, the music, the origins of the work in German and Norse sagas, and the controversies that have continued to surrounded the Ring of the Nibelung since its inception over 140 years ago.

An award-winning teacher, Professor Warren Bebbington was Director of the University of Melbourne Conservatorium of Music for 17 years after completing a PhD on Wagner. Using recorded excerpts, visual images from the past and present, and demonstrating at the piano, Professor Bebbington introduces the gods, giants, heroes and dwarfs that animate the Ring’s progress, and explains the meanings Wagner intended, as well as those audiences today perceive.
