Join Academy-Award nominated filmmaker Jon Else or members of the Local 16 Union Crew for screenings and conversation of Sing Faster: The Stagehands’ Ring Cycle.
"Winner of the prestigious Filmmaker’s Trophy (2000) at Sundance, Sing Faster is a spirited and comical behind-the-scenes look at Richard Wagner’s beloved Ring cycle, one of the most ambitious and spectacular operas in history. This acclaimed film from Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker Jon Else tells the story of Wagner’s epic masterpiece entirely from the point of view of the San Francisco Opera’s unsung heroes—the union stagehands." –Docurama
