There is plenty of material about the Ring on the web – Richard Wagner is, after all, reputedly one of the most written about people in history (second only to Jesus!). Most of what is written is though for adults and not really for children. Here are a few pointers to some extra materials.

Rheingold Cartoon

If you go to the Children/Opera on Film/Animated Operas section of this website you will find a 10 minute animated version of Das Rheingold which contains highlights of the first four scenes from our version of the Ring. It is sung in English and was made by Graham Ralph using traditional cel animations.


The complete Ring sung in English

If you have been inspired by our 75-min version you might like to listen to the complete 15hr-version! It is available either in hard-CD versions or you can download it directly from the Chandos website. It’s a great recording conducted by Reginald Goodall with some of the finest British singers around at the time.



To read more about Leitmotifs and to hear samples of each of them go to:
