Rime of the Ancient Mariner

Multimedia Concert

With Rime of the Ancient Mariner - a 90-minute musical adaptation of Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s greatest work - the band collaborates with American visual artist Mark Holthusen to create a show that is somewhere between a baroque movie and a concert.

Throughout the performance, this multimedia stage production will immerse the audience in the world of Coleridge’s surreal ballad, shifting from song to song to showcase a unique musical experience that's as quirky and unexpected as the Tiger Lillies !

For killing an albatross, the mariner and his crew are punished with drought and death. Amidst a series of supernatural events, the mariner’s life alone is spared and he repents. His penance is to wander the earth and tell his tale with the lesson that “all things great and small” are important.

    He prayeth best, who loveth best
    All things both great and small;
    For the dear God who loveth us,
    He made and loveth all.
