Event Notes

× Embrace the unexpected twists and turns of Forged in Fable‚Äôs folk-opera A Song for Hephaestus , where the journey towards authentic love and healing takes centre stage.

Embark on a mythic journey in this three-act folk-opera as it unfolds the captivating tale of Hephaestus, the often overlooked Greek god of artisans, sculpture, and volcanoes, as he rises from underwater volcanic caves to the summit of Mount Olympus. Cast out at birth by his mother Hera, Hephaestus turns his pain into a quest for revenge, leading to a dramatic, emotional exploration of romance, deception, betrayal, and eventual self-discovery.

Discover the transformative power of storytelling and music in a production that fuses shadow puppetry, intricate vocal harmonies, sincere drama, and comedic bravado. Forged in Fable uses a unique approach, including gender-blind casting, transcends traditional boundaries, focusing on intrinsic character archetypes rather than stereotypes.
