The Ring CycleGotterdammerung is also known as "The Twilight of the Gods." Robert Wagner was both the composer of the music and writer of the libretto. Gotterdammerung is the fourth work in a series of four. Das Rheingold ("The Rhine Gold"), Die Walküre ("The Valkyrie") and Siegfried are the other three. Together, they are known as The Ring cycle. When they were first performed, they were showcased in order on August 13, 14 and 16 as well as 17, 1876. It is said that Wagner was fascinated by early Norse and German heroic poetry, including the medieval German epic Nibelungenlied ("Song of the Nibelung"). In 1848, he sketched out a prose version of the Nibelung myth. Siegfrieds Tod ("The Death of Siegfried") became the basis of Gotterdammerung. In 1850, he began composing. In 1851, he began working backward because he realized he could not tell Siegfried’s death before telling his life. It took him 26 years to complete the project.
