A foreign doc on the high-octane theatre world + libationsPlease note that this offer is two for the price of one ($12.50 each) and can only be bought in pairs. Grab a bud and come see a spectacular film!
It doesn’t get more dramatic than a foreign documentary about musical theatre. Der Colón Ring follows a theatre company in Buenos Aires who hope to condense Wagner’s epic trilogy, The Ring of Nibelung, into an evening-long production. The project is ambitious as is, but can the troupe truck forward when the stage director quits the first day of rehearsal? Don’t forget it’s a documentary, so even if novel-to-play adaptations aren’t your thing, stay for the frenetic "show must go on" energy and reality-TV caliber meltdowns. Plus, you'll get to settle in and sip a glass of beer or wine (included in your ticket price) while enjoying the film at your leisure.
