Flawed Depiction of Siegfried!
on 12 April 2013
Updated version using sets and clothing from the mid 20th century. Tells the story in a very clear and entertaining way using symbolism. The main problem with this production is the character of Siegfried who is cast as a wild adolescent and also who looks like one of the monsters from the film 'Carry on Screaming'.
