Shakespeare’s most revered tragedy is plunged into a world of Weimar cabaret as celebrated cult band The Tiger Lillies present their ‘opera grotesque’ version of Hamlet.
A suite of new songs and a cast of actors, circus acts and giant puppets transform this iconic tragedy into a display of musical and visual fireworks. British musical trio, The Tiger Lillies, bring their punk cabaret style to Shakespeare’s classic tale of love and betrayal, murder and revenge. These post-modern jesters tell the story of the anguished prince Hamlet with their own macabre twist, punctuated by the hauntingly beautiful falsetto and dark, edgy songwriting of frontman Martyn Jacques.
After opening to wild acclaim in Denmark, and touring across Europe, The Tiger Lillies deliver Hamlet in a spectacular blast of theatrical seduction, deception, death and dark humour.
