Description

Full Length Play

Comedy

Wagner's entire Ring cycle - Das Rheingold, Die Walkure, Siegfried, and Gotterdammerung - is compressed and parodied in this three-hour Ridiculous spectacle. According to Ludlam, "in this work we will launch a complete assault on the use of language in the theater. The dialogue will telescope the past, present, and future history of the English tongue into a new expressive idiom. By cutting across linguistic barriers of the Indo-European group, this 'theatrical esperanto' will eliminate the usual nationalist limitations of spoken drama."
"A comic grand opera ... spectacular... heroic." - The New York Times "A complete myth in full barbaric flower... the work of an artist with a vision."-Village Voice "A hilarious, free-wheeling yet faithful reinterpretation of the Ring... written in styles ranging from mock-Elizabethan to broken German and Yiddish." - SoHo Weekly News
