Organised by the Istanbul Arts and Culture Foundation (IKSV), the British cabaret-punk band The Tiger Lillies will perform their unique adaptation of Shakespeare’s famous tragedy Hamlet. This performance, which combines the specially composed music of The Tiger Lillies with the creative stage design of the Danish theater company Theatre Republique, as led by artistic director Martin Tulinius, presents a fascinating world composed of music, imagery and movement.

The Tiger Lillies, known for their unusual style of mixing Gypsy music and opera, will stage Hamlet as a “Grotesque Opera”, featuring music, contemporary circus movements, puppets and impressive video images.

The performance will be in English with Turkish subtitles.
