Transcript of Wagner's RIng Cycle & Lord of the Rings Comparison

In the Ring Cycle, they have to return the ring to the Rhine maidens, where the gold that the ring was made of was originally taken from by Alberich. In the Lord of the Rings, they have to return the ring to the flames of Mount Doom in Mordor, where it was forged. In short, both rings are taken back where they came from. The person who wrote the story of the Ring Cycle is the same person who wrote the music for it (Wagner).
The person who wrote the Lord of the Rings, (Tolkein), was not the same person who wrote the music for the movie. There was a seperate composer (Howard Shore). In both The Lord of the Rings and The Ring Cycle, the ring gives its owner mastery of the world. Also both of the rings can turn the person wearing it invisible. Similarities Differences By Halle and Aaron Wagner's Ring Cycle
vs.
The Lord of the Rings Both rings have an inherently evil nature and a corrupting influence upon the minds and wills of its possessors. The ring in The Ring Cycle allows you to shape shift, and the ring in The Lord of the Rings does not. There will be a total of 6 Lord of the Rings books/movies, and there are four operas in the Ring Cycle. Tolkien and Wagner both drew upon the same source material for inspiration, including the Völsungasaga and the Poetic Edda.
