The Tiger Lillies perform Hamlet

Opera Grotesque

Martin Tulinius, artistic director of Theatre Republique and British cult band The Tiger Lillies join forces to reinvent Shakespeare's gruesome tale of Hamlet, a young man faced with the truth of his family history and the duty to revenge his father’s murder.

A two-hour blast of theatrical seduction, deception, death, dark humour and the utter futility of existence, The Tiger Lillies perform HAMLET unfolds in ways never seen on stage before. Shakespeare’s text is cut to the bone and staged in a powerful interpretation, an 'Opera Grotesque' in a Brechtian-style. The Tiger Lillies drive the story in an inimitable suite of 21 newly composed songs, as singer Martyn Jaques plays the role of an omnipotent game master, pushing Hamlet towards his own inevitable destruction.

Truly a unique adventure for lovers of classics and contemporary theatre alike.
