The Ring Cycle: Part 1
Directed by Dave Dalton & Produced by Performance Lab 115
LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!! PL115 adapts the first opera of Wagner’s iconic Ring Cycle into the action-packed world of 1980’s professional wrestling. Pumped up by rock and roll and stupendous egos, Wagner’s Norse gods step inside the squared circle for power and glory. Stripped of its music and set in this new, unconventional context, The Ring Cycle: Part 1 uses Wagner’s story to ask questions about American greed and exuberance.
“Deliriously imaginative and talent-rich…” Jason Zinoman, New York Times Wed July 7, 8, & 9 @ 9:30pm, July 10 @ 7:30pm, July 11 @ 2:30pm – Downstairs Venue
