Richard Wagner’s celebrated adaptation of Viking myths, presented on this occasion without the operatic scores, remains one of the most powerful and influential tales of sword and sorcery ever written, directly inspiring The Lord of the Rings and many other fantasy and sci-fi classics.
Join us as we bring an extraordinary cast of gods, giants, nymphs, dwarfs and humans to life, revealing how mortals and immortals fall under the spell of a powerful ring, possession of which brings the chaos and glory of absolute power! The story unfolds over four hours interspersed with generous intervals and builds into an unforgettable, family friendly evening of mythical romance, comedy and drama. Catch them on different nights or see them all in one epic visit.
A unique opportunity for opera buffs and fantasy fans alike to gain fresh insight into Wagner’s extraordinary chronicle by encountering The Ring Cycle operas performed as plays.
A new theatrical adventure from The Scoop’s award-winning, resident company Gods and Monsters Theatre. Devised by Phil Willmott and Mervyn Millar; Produced by Suzanna Rosenthal
Adapted from Richard Wagner’s librettos by Lisa Kuma.
