About This Show

Sledgehammer Theatre presents the world premiere of Berzerkergäng by Sledgehammer Theatre Artistic Director Kirsten Brandt. Inspired by Richard Wagner’s opera Der Ring des Nibelungen, Snorri Sturluson’s Poetic & Prose Eddas, The Volsungasaga, and The Nibelungenlied, the performance is a contemporary telling of the quest for love and power. When the dwarf Alberich steals a source of unlimited power — the business world goes berserk. As Giants and Gods wage corporate warfare, a Valkyrie named Brunhilde must choose between obedience & love, forgiveness & rage, and desire & truth, even if it means her own doom.

Sledgehammer Associate Artists Michael Severance and Jessa Watson direct.
