ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Wagner's four-part opera cycle, Der Ring des Nibelungen, re-told as a musical comedy? Set in Texas? Performed by a cast of five? Why?

We'll, why not?

Because, for starters, that's 20 hours of narrative! How could you boil it all down to 2 hours of stage time? And where the hell would you start?

Well, operatically speaking, you'd start at the end: with Gotterdammerung. But Das Barbecu starts, naturally enough, at its own beginning. With "A Ring of Gold in Texas" - the lively opening number that (1) introduces the main characters in the age-old struggle for the magic golden Ring that drives the plot, and (2) dispenses lickety-split with the opera plots of Das Rheingold, Die Walkure, and Siegfried.

Now all you "non-opera folks" can relax: from here on out, it's really good ol' musical comedy all the way. Promise. So listen up now.
