"A hugely entertaining night out."
— Limelight
"Menzies clever, inventive direction has matched the performances, which are wonderfully goofy during the first act and, as the show darkens and deepens in act two, deeply moving."
— WA Today
"This excellent production is a wonderful showcase of the depth of Australian artistic talent, and would be right at home on any of the top stages of the world."
— Seesaw Magazine

About the show

Be transported into the woods of enchantment and entanglement, of wishes and wonder, as fairytale characters reveal their most human selves.

A baker, his wife, Cinderella, Jack, Little Red Riding Hood and the Witch all wish for something - but what will the consequences be if their wishes are all granted?

Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Tony-Award-winning musical Into the Woods is a spectacle for all to enjoy as we find ourselves at the intersection of beloved fairy tales in a darkly entertaining comedy.

The Times London called these performances “the genius of Sondheim in an irresistible production” from Northern Ireland Opera. Witness dazzling staging and costumes in this musical masterpiece.
