WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Goblin Market is 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. The Sunday matinee will be followed by a discussion session facilitated by Andrew Elfenbein, chair of the University of Minnesota English Department to explore the poem, its themes, and the historical context.
