Adapted from Richard Wagner’s librettos by Lisa Kuma.

21:30 – 22:15 Twilight of the Gods
A new theatrical adventure from The Scoop’s award-winning,
resident company, Gods and Monsters Theatre (previously
known as Steam Industry Free Theatre).
Richard Wagner’s celebrated adaptation of Viking myths,
presented on this occasion without the operatic scores,
remains one of the most powerful and influential tales of
sword and sorcery ever written, directly inspiring The Lord
of the Rings and many other fantasy and sci-fi classics.
Join us as we bring an extraordinary story of gods, giants,
nymphs, dwarfs and humans to life, revealing how mortals
and immortals fall under the spell of a powerful ring, possession
of which brings the chaos and glory of absolute power!
The story unfolds over four hours interspersed with generous
intervals and builds into an unforgettable, family-friendly
evening of mythical romance, comedy and drama. Catch
them on different nights or see them all in one epic visit.
A unique opportunity for everyone, from opera buffs to
fantasy fans alike, to gain fresh insight into Wagner’s
extraordinary chronicle by encountering The Ring Cycle
operas performed as plays.
Post show chats:
14, 21 & 28 August
of all four plays:
Proudly supported by:
and by The Dr. Mortimer & Theresa Sackler Foundation and the Wagner Society.
