In the French composer Ernest Reyer wrote the lesser-known opera Sigurd, which condenses the story into a single evening's drama. James Baldwin retold the story in a work intended for older children, The Story of Siegfried ().

The story. The story has a long history and, as a result, contains a number of disparate elements. For example, the word Nibelung itself presents difficulties. In the first part of the poem, it appears as the name of Siegfried’s lands and peoples and his treasure, but, throughout the second, it is an alternate name for the Burgundians.
