Das Barbecu

Hey You All!
You’re invited to attend Opera Omaha’s Das Barbecü on Friday, July 24. Part of Mutual of Omaha’s Wild About Omaha Weekend, this production and other events are free and open to the public. Performed on the Bow Truss outside The KANEKO [1111 Jones Street], the three performances begin at 5:30, 7:30 and 9:30 pm.
Das Barbecü is based on the four epic operas written by Richard Wagner in the late 1800’s. These works, known as The Ring of the Nibelung, are considered by many to be the ultimate operatic saga and to experience the entire series you would need to devote over 17 hours of your time. Luckily, our story brilliantly sums it all up in a little over an hour.

You Put Country Western Music in My Opera – two great styles go together. Das Barbecü is a country western spoof of Wagner’s Ring Cycle showcasing the talent of six local actors playing more than 30 outrageous characters with music style ranging from Broadway to Texas swing and from jazz to country two-step.

BBQ, beer and dessert will be available for purchase with our Das Barbecü; complimentary bottled water will be provided. You won’t want to miss this irreverent, slightly risqué, old-fashioned musical that is fun for everyone.
