An original musical comedy inspired by Ring composer Richard Wagner

6 performances only
October 27 – October 30

The following performance is SOLD OUT: Sunday, Oct. 30 at 4PM

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 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.
