Wilhelm Richard Wagner was a highly recognized German composer, conductor, theatre director and polemicist, specially recognized for his ‘operas’ or afterwards known as ‘music dramas’. Wagner's compositions, particularly those of his later period, were characterized by rich harmonies, complex texture and in-depth use of leitmotifs (musical themes related to individual characters, thoughts, places, or plot elements). He was the ninth child of Carl Friedrich Wagner and Johanna Rosine (née Paetz). His father was a clerk in the Leipzig police service and his mother was the daughter of a baker. Wagner was an exceptional opera composer, as he wrote both the music and libretto for every one of his stage works. One of his greatest achievements is a set of four operas – ‘Der Ring des Nibelungen’ (ring cycle in a layman’s language) which were closely based on characteristics of Germanic mythology. Let’s probe into how Wagner achieved all this, despite facing the obstacles like poverty, political exile and unstable love affairs!
