Complete performance of two operas by composer John Cage, entitled Europera’s. By means of stop motion, the pieces by the American avant-garde composer are reduced to a few minutes in this experimental film. Sequel to Wagner’s Ring, for which Cage commissioned director Frank Scheffer to condense Richard Wagner’s opera Der Ring des Nibelungen into a short film experience.
