WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In an opium den at the turn of the 20th century, Willow sacrifices her life to pay off her father's debt by working in an occult underground society called 'The Cave'. In this musical exploration of fairy tales, myths, and spiritualism, Willow fights to find light not only in the grim and strange shadow-world around her, but also within herself. The Cave: A Folk Opera is a new story inspired by the classic Beauty and the Beast fairy tale, and told entirely through original folk music.
