During the month of April, we’re learning about German composer Richard Wagner.Wagner was born in Leipzig, Germany in 1813, and is said to have lived one of the romantic period's most controversial, exciting and bizarre lives.
Wagner’s primary musical legacy is his output of ground-breaking operas, which have had a lasting impact on Western music.Perhaps his most famous piece, Der Ring des Nibelungen (The Ring), is a massive work of four smaller operas, which total 16 hours long! He also wrote the famous opera Tristan and Isolde, a tragic love story.
