The Tiger Lillies

15 Feb 2013

With visuals by Mark Holthusen

The Tiger Lillies’ genre-defying brand of other-worldly vocals and unnerving performance style have carved them a unique niche in the cabaret and music theatre scene. After a hit run of Hamlet in London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, the cult creators of the award-winning Shockheaded Peter, now stage another adaptation of a macabre classic.

This visceral repackaging of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner takes Coleridge’s tale of the sinister and supernatural and adds its own dash of music-hall panache and sometimes shocking perspective. The band’s flamboyant live performance is enhanced by large-scale virtual sets that create an immersive and highly atmospheric environment. Across 25 songs and interludes, the legend of the Ancient Mariner unfolds as uncompromising musical and visual melodrama.

This sold out show will be live streamed. Find out more and watch it here.
