Richard Wagner

When the Rhinemaidens who watch over it mockingly reject the advances of the Nibelung Alberich, the dwarf cheats them not only out of their treasure but also out of its secret: whoever forges a ring from the gold and renounces love will rule the world. Alberich does not hesitate, but his omnipotence is short-lived. After all, Wotan, King of the Gods, has also set his sights on the gold...
