We return to The Trinity Centre following last year’s sell out hit The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart with this exhilarating song-play based on the 9th century epic poem.
Direct from New York City, the Herald Angel Award-winning Beowulf – A Thousand Years of Baggage harks back to the raw and rousing style of storytelling in the old Scandinavian mead halls, turning the stage into a cacophonous swirl of explosive original music combining Weillian cabaret, 40s jazz harmony, punk, electronica and Romantic Lieder.
We saw Beowulf – A Thousand Years of Baggage at the Edinburgh Festival in 2011, and are thrilled to be joining Brighton Festival in presenting limited UK dates for this stunning show.
Advance booking recommended. Door sales cash only.
Joyfully raucous and silly… brings out the power and the colour of the legend.
