A new play by Duane Kelly
Directed by Kelly McMahon
In order to remove a curse on her family in Seattle, Mathilde must return a stolen manuscript at the same time that its dead author seeks it. That author is 19th-century composer Richard Wagner, intent on safeguarding his legacy. The handwritten manuscript, now worth millions, is an unknown last scene for his famous Ring operas. Determined to thwart Wagner is the cunning dwarf Alberich, the Ring‘s villain, who long ago escaped his creator’s grasp.
Speight Jenkins, Wagner expert and former Seattle Opera General Director, will host free post-performance discussions on March 23 and 30, and April 2.
