Boublil & Schönberg’s THE PIRATE QUEEN
This new musical combines classic storytelling and a sweeping score, with the powerful, vibrant traditions of Irish dance and song, to create a modern musical event that is a thrilling adventure, a timeless romance and an historic epic.
Based on the real-life story of Grace O’Malley, The Pirate Queen tells of a compelling, inspirational woman; a heroine who led an extraordinary life as a pirate, chieftain and mother in 16th Century Ireland. Grace was a fiery, defiant figure with incredible resilience. She was able to unite the feuding clans of Ireland against Elizabeth’s attempt to conquer Ireland, which ultimately brought her to a tense face to face meeting with the Queen of England.
This highly romanticised telling of her life was a collaboration between Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg and the producers of the worldwide phenomenon Riverdance.
