Re: Thor: The Musical
Just came across this, browsing through old threads.
This material's dramatic themes do seem well suited for opera. . .and the original Norse myths have indeed received this treatment: Wagner's Ring Cycle.
Admittedly, Donner (Thor) (baritone) is not prominent in that story. But it does include a Ragnaroek (Goetterdaemmerung).
"I have lived many ages of men, Steven. Centuries without end. I have seen many great men, and known countless honors. But the greatest honor of this ancient and tired soul has been the privilege of fighting beside you, and calling you my friend."
