The Enchanted Pig
Squad grad Laura Attridge is directing a ‘fairytale opera’ this November at Jacksons Lane Theatre.
“The Enchanted Pig is a magical journey of an opera,” says director Laura Attridge, “Based on a Romanian fairy tale, the story explores the different forms love can take, and celebrates love’s transformative power. Having been commissioned and first produced by the Young Vic, the opera is a wonderful tapestry of musical and theatrical styles. It’s hilarious but it’s also moving and meaningful: it balances darkness and light beautifully, and it will appeal to all ages, no matter what their past experience of opera.”
