The King is mad. A madman who thinks he is a King.


Long established as one of the most celebrated and shocking pieces of British music theatre ever written, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies’ 8 Songs for a Mad King is an extravagant, disturbing and poignant portrayal of madness.

Through this compelling retelling, Shadwell Opera bring their vision to this visceral monodrama that delves deep into the torrid anxiety of our contemporary society.
