Music: Conor Mitchell

Words: Kath Burlinson


A chamber opera of high energy physical theatre and complex musical harmonies based on Christina Rossetti’s famous tale. With music by renowned composer Conor Mitchell, this enchanting production charts the story of two sisters who are ‘tempted’ by goblin merchant men. Opera, fairy-tale, musical theatre combine in this spectacular production last seen at the George Square Theatre, Edinburgh in 2005. Unmissable, tempting, controversial, seductive… can you hear the Goblin call?


Age range: 13 upwards


Produced by British Youth Music Theatre
