Sing Faster! The Stagehands' Ring Cycle

This is a great documentary on what happens backstage during a production of Wagner's Ring Cycle. I never worked on a production this big so I learned some tricks like hiding bottles of oxygen and masks in the rocks in case the Rhine Maidens are overcome by the carbon dioxide fog. There were some interesting costumes like the Giants, which looked like a combination of Klingons and Psychlos. While the singing is going on, between set changes, the stagehands are playing poker and watching TV. It was very interesting and in some places, rather humorous.
