Beowulf the Musical

Beowulf title page

A re-visualised adaptation of the epic poem Beowulf in the form of a musical. This adaptation distances itself from fantasy and focuses on traditional storytelling, word of mouth; seeking to explore the roots of the tale and what may have actually happened.

 

Grendel – “I will see this hall burns to the ground. His pride will be stained by the ash of his vainglory; this unworthy king will suffer just as I have.”
