ASMR Sleep Stories in the Black Forest: Germanic and Norse Mythology - The Ring of the Nibelung


The French Whisperer ASMR
Published 2 years ago

In this male soft spoken ASMR sleep story, I invite you around a campfire in the Black Forest.
I tell you the story of the Ring of the Nibelung, a cycle of 4 operas by Richard Wagner (the Rhinegold, the Valkyrie, Siegfried and Twilight of the Gods) as a starting point to explore Germanic and Norse mythology, the origins and importance of Germanic Peoples, the creation of national narratives in the 19th Century, the legacy of Wagner, and more.
