The Ring Cycle Plays

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

The Scoop's award-winning resident company Gods and Monsters Theatre presents The Ring Cycle Plays. Devised by Phil Willmott and Mervyn Millar, produced by Suzanna Rosenthal and adapted from Richard Wagner's librettos by Lisa Kuma, 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 Gods and Monsters Theatre as they bring an extraordinary story of gods, giants, nymphs, dwarfs and human characters 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. This is 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.
