1800's, spent 26 years from the age of 35 until he was 61,

writing the text and composing the music for a four-part

music-drama, Der Ring des Niebelungen (The Ring of the

Niblung
) which was first performed in 1876. The work is based

on Norse and German mythology and the characters

include gods, half-gods, nymphs, dwarves and giants.

Humans do not appear on the scene until the second

part of the music-drama which is Die Walkure

(The Valkyrie).
