The Tiger Lillies’ Christmas Carol

The Tiger Lillies’ Christmas Carol

In The Tiger Lillies’ Christmas Carol: A Victorian Gutter, the post-punk pioneers present a dark musical twist on Charles Dickens’ classic.

 

The trio dissect and reassemble the story that everyone knows to shine a light on the poverty and depravity laid bare on the cold London streets.

 

The world of The Tiger Lillies is dark, peculiar and varied, with moments of deep sadness, cruel black humour and immense beauty.

 

Their songs cover all the dark aspects of life, from prostitution and drug addiction to violence and despair.

 

The music is a mixture of pre-war Berlin cabaret, anarchic opera and gypsy music.

 

Part Grand Guignol, part seedy vaudeville, part grunge cabaret, The Tiger Lillies never cease to shock, surprise and entertain.

 

The Grammy-nominated band’s previous concerts and theatre shows have included Edgar Allan Poe’s Haunted Palace, The Ancient Mariner and the Olivier Award-winning Shockheaded Peter.
