Lyric Opera & The Second City Present Longer! Louder! Wagner! The Second City Wagner Companion
- Location - William Mason Rehearsal Hall
An original musical comedy inspired by Ring composer Richard Wagner
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 Companionbrings us 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.
