Rumpelstiltskin by Marti Epstein is based on a classic Brothers Grimm tale that has permeated our culture for hundreds of years. Retelling the story for our time, with many of the roles voiced by women, Marti’s hypnotic music transports you to an expansive fairy tale world.

This family-friendly performance is sung in English in an oratorio style with shadow puppetry. Directed by Nathan Troup with production design by co-artistic director Julia Noulin-Mérat, and puppetry by Iranian theater artist Deniz Khateri.

Duration: Approximately 75 minutes
