  • With its massive set designs and 17-hour running time, Richard Wagner's RING CYCLE is the most daunting production an opera house can stage. Jon Else's award-winning documentary SING FASTER chronicles the San Francisco Opera's undertaking of the epic masterpiece from the unique perspective of the company's unionized stagehands. Utilizing time-lapse photography, Else documents the stage crew's efforts to bring the opera's mythical world of Rhinemaidens and Valkyries to life while spending their backstage time playing poker, watching baseball, knitting sweaters, and balancing checkbooks. And as they move half-ton scenery through darkened intermissions or gingerly operate a huge mechanical dragon, the stagehands' behind-the-scenes struggles uncannily echo the epic dramas playing out onstage--offering an apt meditation on the intersection of art and working life.
