Libretto by Alasdair Middleton based on a Romanian folk tale

“Love makes you happy. Love makes you cruel”. It’s the old story – King goes off to war, tell his daughters not to go into a locked room containing the Book of Fate, daughters don’t listen and one of them ends up marrying a pig. Drawing on Romanian and Norwegian folk tales, this magical family show, which has its trotters in the worlds of opera and musical theatre, has delighted audiences in more than 150 performances in the UK and USA.

This dynamic work, with its humour and clarity of lyrical presentation is through-composed for a cast of opera singers and singing actors, and its mixture of fairy tale and the universal appeal of the mythological, with all its range and depth of meaning, is captivating for audiences of all ages.
