The Ring by Richard Wagner (Der Ring des Nibelungen) is of epic scope lasting over 16 hours for the four operas that make up the cycle. It took Wagner over 26 years to complete the cycle depicting the struggles of gods, heroes, and several mythical creatures over the eponymous magic ring that grants domination over the entire world. The drama and intrigue start with Das Rheingold (The Rhinegold) and follows with Die Walküre (The Valkyrie) and Siegfried and continue through three generations of protagonists, until the final cataclysm at the end of Götterdämmerung (Twilight of the Gods).
VEGAS CITY OPERA'S TAKE....as only Vegas City Opera would dare to do!
Imagine each of the four pieces condensed into the highlights of theme, story and leitmotif. As this epic tale scours the Las Vegas valley on the quest for the Ring our group of characters will visit you via your front door and your "Ring" like doorbell. Our story will culminate in a digital event, November 14th, 2020 as we unveil the entire Vegas saga in less than three hours!
Will you help our hero's and gods on their journey? Will you be instrumental in continuing this story? Will you bring opera to life in our community this Fall?
Filming September - November of 2020
This project was developed with the COVID-19 safety protocols in place. Social distancing, face coverings, and keeping our performers out of direct contact with the community this Fall was an important factor for development. Filming at locations will take place with your front door closed. "Photo Op" determined by proximity of door/hallway/exterior of location and performers involved.
