Rime of the Ancient Mariner at QEH London

The Tiger Lillies make a triumphant return to London with The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.

Queen Elizabeth Hall - Southbank Centre

Fri 29 Aug 2014–Sun 31 Aug 2014

This year's performance follows sell-out Queen Elizabeth Hall performances last summer and much-heralded shows around the world.

'A haunting evening's entertainment full of ethereal grace.' **** (The Daily Telegraph)

The cult-creators of the Olivier Award-winning Shockheaded Peterstage another adaptation of a macabre classic as they take Coleridge's tale of the sinister and supernatural and add a dash of music-hall panache, with stunning visuals by Mark Holthusen.

 

The band's flamboyant live performance is enhanced by large-scale virtual sets that create an immersive and highly atmospheric environment. Across 25 songs, the legend of the Ancient Mariner unfolds as uncompromising musical and visual melodrama.

'The show is a glorious visual cabinet of curiosities that enthrals on all its surreal fronts, a version of madness that matches the lonely voice of Coleridge's mariner with the sadness of Jacques' lyrics and music... Unforgettable.' (The Arts Desk)
