When Wagner’s Ring Cycle hits Chicago and folks go hog wild, do ya’ll wonder why?

Well, coming soon, see what all the whoopin’ and hollerin’ is about as Petite Opera Productions spins Wagner’s Ring Cycle as a witty Texas fable — Das Barbecü — 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, a magic ring of power, wild west lariat tricks, a synchronized swimming revue, a song and dance tribute to the joys of guacamole, and the sweetest two-step ever to slide across a stage add up to wild comedy.

Whether ya’ll are a Wagner opera fan, or don’t know Wotan from a hobbit or a cowboy, ya’ll will love this wild ride!

Fans of Richard Wagner and Petite Opera Production’s other spooferettas (Petite Opera Productions originals Al Fresco: Life Through Opera-Colored Glasses, The Magic Flute 3.0—A Space Opera or Dimitri Toscas’ Cosi fan tutte) will love Das Barbecü!
