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), Siegfried Wagner’s third opera, was first staged in 1904. It demonstrates the composer’s preoccupation with the theme of infanticide, coupled with magic and evil conflicts, only resolved by the death of the heroine.

Recorded at the Stadttheater Fürth, Germany, from 8th November to 3rd December, 2005, and at the Stadthalle Bayreuth, Germany, on 21st November, 2005
