The Redeemer Reborn: Parsifal as the Fifth Opera of Wagner's Ring
Traditionally, Wagnerian scholarship has always treated the Ring and Parsifal as two separate works. This volume argues that Parsifal is in fact, the fifth opera in the Ring.Redeemer Reborn explains in detail how these five musical dramas portray a single, unbroken story which begins at the start of Das Rheingold when Wotan breaks a branch from the World Ash-tree and Alberich steals the gold of the Rhine, thus separating Spear and Grail, and ends with their reunion in the temple of Monsalavat at the end of Parsifal.It shows how the four main characters go through the cycle of life, and are finally reborn - completing their spiritual journey.
