Photo Flash: First Look at Unexpected Opera's THE RINSE CYCLE at Charing Cross Theatre

Are you curious about Wagner and his famous Ring Cycle but are reluctant to give up loads of time and dosh without knowing more? THE RINSE CYCLE is your chance to experience this amazing work - without taking it too seriously. Scroll down for a peek at the cast onstage at Charing Cross Theatre!

THE RINSE CYCLE, which is getting its London premiere now through Saturday 12 March, takes four operas and 16 hours of music and shrinks it to just two hours and one easily digestible sitting. And it is has added comedy. We can't promise it will be clean, but we'll remove the cultural stains and encrusted stereotypes. Plus you'll hear some of the Wagnerian opera stars of the future. Press night is tonight 19 February at 7.30pm.

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."

In the cast are: Anna Gregory, Mae Heydorn, Edward Hughes, Cara McHardy, Paul Reeves, Simon Thorpe, Justine Viani, Brian Smith Walters, Harriet Williams and Mari Wyn Williams.

Directed by Lynn Binstock with Music Director Kelvin Lim, Designer Nancy Surman, Lighting Designer Tom Mannings, Associate Music Director Robert Bottriell and script by Roger Mortimer.
