Rinse CycleFeb 2016
Wagner’s Ring Cycle conditioned with comedy and shrunk to two hours by Unexpected Opera

Unexpected Opera takes operatic warhorses and uses humour and surprise to free them from convention and popular prejudice.  Having dealt with a number of repertoire favourites in recent years they now turn their attention to Wagner, reducing sixteen hours of music to two in a version which retains magnificent music and great drama whilst removing the cultural stains and encrusted stereotypes.  Their adaptation of Wagner’s Ring, The Rinse Cycle, opens at London’s Charing Cross Theatre on February 15 where it runs until March 12.
