Experience the Minnesota premier of David Seaman’s four-hour reduction of Richard Wagner’s epic Ring Cycle. The MINI-RING will feature eight of the biggest operatic names in the world, including Grammy award winners Jay Hunter Morris and Richard Paul Fink, singing with a stellar 17-piece chamber orchestra under the direction of Jonathan Khuner.
In this once-in-a-lifetime concert version, Richard Wagner’s four-opera, 16-hour Ring Cycle (Das Reingold, Die Walküre, Siegfried and Götterdämmerung) is transformed into one, four-hour production containing all the major leitmotifs and characters used in the full Ring Cycle. This breathtaking one-evening experience is the perfect introduction to Wagner’s music and the Ring Cycle.
Both performances are followed by a "Meet the Artists" champagne and dessert reception at Mason's Restaurant & Barre, located inside The Cowles Center.
