Goblin Market - British Youth Music Theatre - BYMT

Current shows

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 and book and lyrics by Kath Burlinson, this enchanting production charts the story of two sisters who are ‘tempted’ by goblin merchant men. Unmissable, tempting, controversial, seductive… can you hear the Goblin call?

Opera, fairy-tale, musical theatre combine in this spectacular production last seen at the George Square Theatre, Edinburgh in 2005. 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.

“A brilliant production…energetic, dynamic, exciting, superb… Conor Mitchell has excelled here with a demanding and ambitious score… phenomenal Irish News

“Magical…Burlinson and Mitchell have created the ideal vehicle for such a versatile and talented company of performers” Belfast Telegraph

Adapted from the poem by Christina Rossetti
