Tales of the Olde Sea
Presented by Solferino Cinemas & Entertainment
A live music theatre show presented by Solferino Cinemas & Entertainment held its premiere season performances in September-October 2018.
Tales of the Olde Sea takes you on a rollicking sea journey into the past incorporating tales of olden-day seafaring peoples along with music, storytelling and poetry. Listen to Traditional Sea Shanties, hear stories and poetry from Ancient Seafaring Cultures and discover the Mysterious Creatures of the Deep. Learn of the World’s Ocean Mythology and its evocative ancient legends passed down along with the true history of cunning and marauding Pirates.
The show is a mixture of comedy, mystery, adventure and fun set to traditional and original music, poetry, text and song and narrated with a lot of humorous sailor talk that underpins many of our modern-day English expressions. Extracts from Homer's Odyssey describes the inexplicable sea. Played on the Harp are haunting Irish songs about beautiful Celtic fables. Listen to curious 'true' mystery tales like The Flying Dutchman Ship, Ancient Sea Giants, Ghost Ships, Sea Silkies, Sirens and the adventures of real Pirates.
