"Wagner was at the same time a horror, a phenomenon and a genius."

Excerpt:
A revolting dwarf Alberich appears through a crack in the Rhine: Hi sexy! he shouts. Who's that ask the girls. From Greater Nibelheim says Alberich. Any chance of having sex with you girls? Dirty beast says Wellgunde. Let's teach him a lesson says Woglinde.
The sun rises and lights up the Rhinegold. What's that stuff? asks Alberich. Ignorant pig say the girls it's the Rhinegold of course. It gives absolute power to anyone who swears to give up all forms of sexual satisfaction forever. Works best when formed into a ring. Great Scott I see I see says Alberich. OK I swear to give up all forms of sex forever. He seizes the gold. The Rhinemaidens yell help! Stop thief! etc.
