-Watch Margaret Atwood’s novel on stage in the form of an opera in the largest theatre of London.
Based on the novel by Marget Atwood of the same name, The Handmaid’s Tale is a powerful rendition by Danish composer Poul Ruder. First premiered in 2000 in Copenhagen, Margaret Atwood’s story has made the rounds around the world.
Watch the patriarchal dictatorship taking hold of Gilead where women are nothing more than trophies. Follow Offred’s struggles and fears as she navigates this new world. See her trying hard to hold on to her individualism and facing consequences for her actions.
The show is being directed by Annilese Miskimmon who has won awards such as International Opera Award, Guardian Theatre, Aarhus Stiften award, and more for her works. Poul Ruder’s score further enhances the brutality faced by the women in Gilead. The music transitions from loud chanting to a beautiful love duet and one can sense the unease that is a part of the story.
With a talented cast of Kate Lindsey as Offred, Susan Bickley as her mother, soprano Emma Bell as Aunt Lydia, and John Findon as Luke, this show is likely to be a hit. Get immersed in the dark reality of Gilead and go through a roller coaster ride as you follow the story of Offred in this new world.
The Handmaid’s Tale revolves around a handmaid named Offred who is considered little more than a trophy by the people around her. The story takes place in North America where the Republic of Gilead is formed after the assassination of the President of the United States. This new republic follows a patriarchal dictatorship with women having no rights or freedom.
When the wife of a high-ranking government official cannot bear offspring, Offred is forced to act as a proxy and bear a child for the wife. We see the injustice of this new world and how handmaids are viewed as properties. Watch the struggles of Offred in this new regime as she fights to maintain her individualism and freedom.
