Presentation of Die Nibelungen (1924)

Juan Manuel de Prada

Writer Juan Manuel de Prada presents, within the cycle "Literary adaptations" the first part of the silent film LDie Nibelungen (1924), an ambitious recreation by Fritz Lang of the Germanic epic poem of the 13th century, a national epic that would inspire Richard Wagner's (1848-1874) romantic opera of the same name. The powerful legend was developed in colossal settings and will be exhibited in two parts—as it was in its premiere—due to its long duration.
