Notes and Editorial Reviews

Siegfried Wagner, the son of Richard Wagner and his second wife Cosima, composed seventeen operas in total, expertly written in a late romantic style derived from the influence of Humperdinck. His subjects are generally drawn from medieval German sources, often preoccupied with witchcraft and magic. Der Kobold (The Goblin) was created in 1904. A bonus feature includes "The Making of Der Kobold", a film by Stephan Kelch.
