Bluebeard image

Multi-award-winning Emma Rice returns to BAC with a new, fearless reimagining of the classic tale, Blue Beard.
Get ready for a wildly inventive musical feast, as this exhilarating story of vengeance and sisterhood unfolds in our Grand Hall.
Blue Beard the Magician makes hearts flutter and pupils dilate. With a wink, things just seem to vanish. Cards, coins, scarves… and women. Puff! Gone. Without a trace.
He meets his match when his young bride discovers his dark and murderous secret. She summons all her rage, all her smarts and all her sisters to bring the curtain down on his tyrannous reign.
When someone tells you not to look, OPEN THE BLOODY DOOR!
One of the UK’s most influential artists of the last 50 years, Emma Rice (Brief Encounter, The Red Shoes, Wuthering Heights, Malory Towers, Tristan & Yseult) brings her brand of theatrical wonder to create a rousing story for our times, full of music and invention.
