Richard Wagner was a famous German composer and theatre director known for his brilliant operas. As a child he was very ambitious and wrote his first drama at the age of 11 and then developed his first composition at the age of 16. He performed his first symphony during his graduation. He then joined the ‘Magdeburg Theatre’ as a music director and came up with the lyrics and music for ‘Das Liebesverbot’. He moved to Riga to work on his first staged opera titled ‘Rienzi’ which turned out to be a failure and he had to escape to Paris to avoid his creditors. His was in a self-imposed-exile for 12 long years doing some petty jobs to survive. During this period he started off by writing a libretto for a single opera called ‘Siegfrieds Tod (Siegfried's Death)’ which was followed by a sequel ‘Der junge Siegfried’.
