Wilhelm Richard Wagner was a German composer, conductor, theatre director and essayist, primarily known for his operas (or "music dramas", as they were later called). Unlike most other great opera composers, Wagner wrote both the scenario and libretto for his works.

“Weh! Weh!
Süssestes Weib!
Du traurigste aller Getreuen!
Gegen dich wütet
in Waffen die Welt:
und ich, dem du einzig vertraut,
für den du ihr einzig getrotzt,
mit meinem Schutz
nicht soll ich dich schirmen,
die Kühne verraten im Kampf?
Ha, Schande ihm,
der das Schwert mir schuf,
beschied er mir Schimpf für Sieg!
Muss ich denn fallen,
nicht fahr' ich nach Walhall:
Hella halte mich fest!”
