Richard Wagner had the idea of writing an opera on the death of the Teutonic ur-hero Siegfried. Then he decided to add some additional material, and the project grew and grew to become the four-opera, 16-hour Ring des Nibelungen, one of the most astonishing accomplishments in all of western civilization. Gotterdammerung (The Twilight of the Gods) is the last and most amazing of the four operas of the cycle, as Wagner brings down the world of the gods and heroes in fire and water. What he accomplishes with his orchestral writing is nothing short of astonishing--and you can see how he does it by following along with this full orchestral score from Dover. Dover scores, reprints of out-of-copyright editions from other publishers, are entirely lacking in frills, and they're not that helpful to singers who need to learn a role. But inexpensive Dover scores may be a Wagnerite's best friend (after the Solti recording of the Ring!), whether you're new to the Ring or an old hand.
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Composer and conductor Richard Wagner (1813 83) is best known for his four-opera classic, "The Ring." Unlike most other composers, Wagner wrote both the scenario and libretto for his operas."

It's a big work but once you get involved in the action (this takes a few seconds at most), the time flies by and before you know it, it is over. It is a great idea to equip oneself with the score for most productions as, unfortunately, there are very few good productions of this ever. It is a complicated score, exhausting and difficult to sing and interpret. A pity, for when Gotterdammerung is done right there are few things as powerful and beautiful in the world.
[For details, please see my equivalent review for "Siegfried in Full Score", which Dover reprint is from the same first-edition source as this one.]
Nevertheless, warmly recommended!
works or better yet the epic work by Cornelius Ryan; the last battle.
about the only positive things i can say about this book is that it contains very good photographs and illustrations. but that is hardly reason to purchase it. it feels as if it doesn't even have a string of narrative that connects it from beginning to end.
in closing there's mo better books to buy on the last battle in Berlin than this onel
