THE ENCHANTED PIG

When you’re a princess you expect a fairytale wedding. You don’t expect your husband to be hairy, smelly and a genuine pig.

Music by Jonathan Dove
Libretto by Alasdair Middleton

When you’re a princess you expect a fairytale wedding. You don’t expect your husband to be hairy, smelly and a genuine pig. Of course, underneath that porcine exterior lives a prince trapped by a witch’s spell… Based on a Romanian folktale, this is a terrifically funny and tuneful family treat.

In this acclaimed production, Jonathan Dove’s playful score brings the moon, the stars and the Milky Way to vivid musical life while Alasdair Middleton’s wonderfully witty lyrics tickle children and adults alike.

The production toured both in 2006/2007 and 2009/2010.

The Linbury Studio Theatre, London
New Victory Theatre, New York City
Theatre Royal Bury St. Edmunds
