    Wagner's Ring cycle is often regarded as a masterpiece of impenetrable complexity, but here, in lucid prose, Michael Birkett retells the four music dramas - The Rhinegold, The Valkyries, Siegfried and Twilight of the Gods - to reveal the primal simplicity of this epic story of power, love, heroism and conflict. Stage designer Elizabeth Bury's accompanying illustrations evoke the dark magic of this tragic drama as it moves inexorably to its apocalyptic finale.
