Y MABINOGI

 

In the beginning there was balance. Night followed Day, Summer and Winter would always come around. Then, one day, Rhiannon, bored of this never-ending cycle, chose to break it -spinning the whole world off balance and into chaos.

 

Follow the legends of Rhiannon, Blodeuwedd, and Pryderi through a time when magic coursed through the Welsh landscape, fantastical tales of giants filled the air, epic battles took place, and wizards cast their spells.

 

Struts and Frets Theatre’s inventive and enchanting adaptation of the classic Welsh tale, The Mabinogion, will take you on an exhilarating journey with elaborate puppetry, immersive storytelling, and original music.
