Bluebeard WOP2-08.jpg

“A surreal, vibrant, visually loaded journey through our fantasies and nightmares...”

Bluebeard is unravelling. He's losing perspective, and questioning his sense of self. As each door in his castle is opened, a new aspect of his tortured soul is revealed - until at last, we see what the seventh door is hiding...


Join Gothic Opera for this unique interpretation of BLUEBEARD'S CASTLE, which explores what is real and unreal, and the idea of finding or losing ourselves. Created by director Julia Mintzer and choreographer Carmine de Amicis, with a brand new arrangement by Leon Haxby. Conducted by Thomas Payne. This production is a collaboration with the digital technology department of the University of Ravensbourne.


Sung in Hungarian with English surtitles.
