About this show

Brimming with wit and imagination, Moby Dick is a fast-paced adventure through Herman Melville's perilous tale of obsession and revenge. On a spartan set housing just a hat-filled trunk and a dusty lamp, three actor-musicians seamlessly jump from character to character, vividly reenacting the Pequod's heart-stopping, final voyage. A double bass and cello added to the cast, embodying everything from the creaking hull to the moaning sea to the great, white whale himself with a few eerie bow strokes. Renowned for its signature style of musical-narrative-theater, Theater Triebwerk from Hamburg, Germany, plunges deep into the abyss of Melville's poetic prose and resurfaces with a tantalizing evocative production.
