Work - or at least plans for work - is already under way for next Winter's grand show. Inspired by the sterling performance of Natascha Wocke as Brünnhilde in The Everlasting Circle, writer Jane Page determined to tackle the entire Ring Cycle of Wagner for winter 2014.
However, being unable to face a 3-day performance, let alone stage the Destruction of the World, she has cut (or bi-sected - hence Bi-Cycle) the story of The Ring so that it should fit into a normal evening's entertainment. ('normal' is possibly not the most accurate word for a play that will contain 3 Rhine daughters, 3 gods, 3 Valkyries, 1 hero, 1 fire spirit, 1 earth spirit, several dwarves and 2 giants, one of whom turns into a dragon.)
Plans are for a sumptuous presentation, with performances around mid March 2015.
