The Rinse Cycle at Charing Cross Theatre

Award-winning Unexpected Opera have announced plans for an entertaining take on Wagner’s famous Ring Cycle. The Rinse Cycle is a comic play with highlights sung in English by five performers. According to the company, it’s an opportunity to experience Wagner’s amazing work, “without taking it too seriously”. The Rinse Cycle, which get its London premiere at Charing Cross Theatre from 15 February - 12 March, takes four operas and 16-hours of music and shrinks it to just two hours and one easily-digestible sitting.

“We can’t promise it will be clean,” they warn, “but we’ll remove the cultural stains and encrusted stereotypes. Plus you’ll hear some of the Wagnerian opera stars of the future.”

Unexpected Opera’s artistic director Lynn Binstock said: “As well as conveying the crucial elements of the story and offering an experience of Wagner’s music at a high level of quality, I’d like to give the audience some feel for the magnitude, richness, intellectual reach, complexity and sheer awesomeness of the Ring and its composer.”

The Rinse Cycle runs at Charing Cross Theatre from 15 February. Book Now!
