About the show
Be transported into the woods of enchantment and entanglement, of wishes and wonder, as fairytale characters reveal their most human selves.
A baker, his wife, Cinderella, Jack, Little Red Riding Hood and the Witch all wish for something - but what will the consequences be if their wishes are all granted?
Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Tony-Award-winning musical Into the Woods is a spectacle for all to enjoy as we find ourselves at the intersection of beloved fairy tales in a darkly entertaining comedy.
The Times London called these performances “the genius of Sondheim in an irresistible production” from Northern Ireland Opera. Witness dazzling staging and costumes in this musical masterpiece.
