Rooted in the midlands of Ireland, ancient mythology and the ills of the modern world collide in this extraordinary adaptation of the beloved classic.
Combining soaring dancing and boundary-busting theatre, song and live music, acclaimed director Michael Keegan-Dolan swaps Tchaikovsky’s original score for Irish folk music with a Nordic noir twist.
Stunning and hard-hitting, yes. Yet good things arise out of the bad, as this extraordinary, magical performance transports you along an imagined dark path towards the light and a resounding redemption.
“It is utterly original, it is utterly brilliant.” - Irish Independent
