Lyric Opera and The Second City
join forces once again to celebrate everyone’s favorite four-day, fifteen-hour opera. Longer! Louder! Wagner! The Second City Wagner Companion
brings you to 1848 Germany where Wagner first began work on the Ring
, to modern-day Bayreuth, home of Wagner’s personally-designed opera house, and hilariously illustrates the lasting effects of his masterpiece and the headaches an opera company might encounter trying to mount this behemoth. Note: Show may contain inaccurate German accents.
Performed in Lyric’s William Mason Rehearsal Hall with cabaret-style seating, including tableside food and beverage service.
