The Tiger Lillies are back and like post-modern jesters, they tell Shakespeare's tale of the anguished prince Hamlet with their own macabre twist. Directed by Theatre Republique’s Artistic Director Martin Tulinius, The Tiger Lillies Perform Hamlet is an explosion of music and images - a two-hour blast of theatrical seduction, deception, death, dark humour and the utter futility of existence.

From Denmark's acclaimed Republique Theatre, featuring stunning circus acts and video projections, as well as giant puppets and a new score from the band, The Tiger Lillies bring their punk cabaret to this tale of betrayal and murder, love and revenge.

The Tiger Lillies Perform Hamlet opened in Denmark in 2011 and has been touring extensively in Europe, Asia, Australia and America, gaining great popular and critical acclaim.

Directed by Martin Tulinius.

Visually and musically striking. It's the best production of Hamlet I’ve seen to date

The Australian review

Aesthetically gorgeous, yet dramatic and painful. A masterpiece.

ARCADIA, Columbia

Piercing, penetrating, perfect. How can Hamlet ever be as good again?

Broadway World Westend

A sinful ’HAMLET’ that is innovative, imaginative and incredible. It’s an evening that will haunt you for all the right reasons.
