Book and lyrics by Jim Luigs — Music by Scott Warrender

An official participant in the Ring Festival LA, this off-Broadway hit is set in various locations throughout present day Texas. It is very loosely based on Richard Wagner's massive four-part 20-hour Ring Cycle, but manages to neatly (and hysterically) compress the story into a rollicking two-hour musical comedy with a country and western score. Opera-lovers and opera-haters alike should be ready to kick back, laugh and have a good 'ol toe-tapping time.
