DAS BARBECÜ in Concert EXTENDED By Popular Demand: 2 more performances!
EXTENDED by popular demand - after 3 sold out shows, 2 performances have been added!

"Its first-rate cast, under the direction of Richard Ziman, offers a delightful evening of high jinks...displaying their expertise both as quick-change artists and singer-actors of major talent.  Even those without any exposure to Wagner's Ring cycle are in for a treat."
(Seattle PI)

"If you've never seen it or even if you're a true fan like myself, you'll want to catch this one if you're lucky enough to get a ticket..."
(Broadway World)

Originally commissioned by Seattle Opera's Speight Jenkins to accompany their internationally renowned production of Wagner's RING CYCLE, DAS BARBECÜ is a two-hour retelling of Wagner's "Ring" cycle, specifically the fourth opera, Götterdammerüng, that  sets Brünnhilde, Siegfried, Wotan and the gang in the middle of Texas and the "Valhalla"  Ranch.  With music by Seattle composer Scott Warrender and book and lyrics by Jim Luigs, BARBECÜ is a witty Texas fable with five actors playing more than 30 outrageous characters at breakneck speed. Songs run the gamut from Broadway to Texas swing, from jazz to twangy country and western. Mismatched lovers who meet on the day of their shotgun double wedding, three generations of feuding families and a magic ring of power make for a fast and furious love letter to Wagner's great epic.

This special concert event features an All Star cast of Seattle theater's best, many of them veterans of previous local productions, directed by Richard Ziman (Wotan in ACT Theater's most recent iteration) with music direction by Mark Rabe.
