Theatre Elision presents Goblin Market, a musical adaptation of Christina Rossetti’s 1859 narrative poem by Polly Pen and Peggy Harmon featuring the artwork of Omar Rayyan. Two proper Victorian sisters return to their childhood nursery to relive the haunting memories of their youth. Blending music, poetry and entrancing imagery, the play weaves an enchanted spell that will linger long in the memory. To further explore the connections between the musical, the original poem, and the historical context, the matinee show on October 1st will be followed by a discussion session facilitated by Andrew Elfenbein, Ph.D., Chair of the University of Minnesota English Department.
