"[Songs of Lear] is one of the most profoundly moving theatre productions I have ever experienced."

The Herald, Scotland

Song of the Goat Theatre
Songs of Lear
Directed by Grzegorz Bral
Music by Jean-Claude Acquaviva
and Maciej Rychly

An audience favorite at Edinburgh's Fringe Festival, Warsaw-based troupe Song of the Goat Theatre integrates movement, song, and text to mine historical works for fresh insights. The award-winning Songs of Lear retells the tragic king's story as a dramatic oratorio blending Corsican folk music and Gregorian chant—a production the New York Times called viscerally awe inspiring.

Run time: approximately 70 minutes with no intermission.
