Lyric Opera & The Second City Present Longer! Louder! Wagner! The Second City Wagner Companion

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.

  • Location: William Mason Rehearsal Hall
