"[Songs of Lear] is one of the most profoundly moving theatre productions I have ever experienced."—The Herald, Scotland
Music by Jean-Claude Acquaviva
and Maciej Rychly
An audience favorite at Edinburgh's Fringe Festival, Poland's renowned Song of the Goat Theatre integrates movement, song, and text to mine historical works for fresh insights. The award-winning Songs of Lear retells the tragic king's story as a dramatic oratorio blending Corsican folk music and Gregorian chant—a production the New York Times called
viscerally awe inspiring.
Run time: approximately 70 minutes with no intermission.
