Synopsis

The Edinburgh Festival run of Goblin Market finished on 28th August 2005 after a 21 performance run lasting over a month. The production received many 4 and 5 star reviews and was seen by over 2,500 people.

Opera, fairytale, musical theatre combine in this spectacular production originally produced at the Lyric Theatre Belfast. Goblin Market is an 75 minute chamber opera charting the story of two sisters who are ‘tempted’ by goblin merchant men. The poem has been controversial since it was first written in 1862 but this production has been hailed by press and public alike as a huge success, the production setting new standards of excellence in youth theatre.

The young cast members are drawn largely from Northern Ireland as well as from mainland Britain.
