Join us for an evening of heartbreak, betrayal, jealousy, bitterness and occasional murder as we share our favourite love stories from Irish Myth. These characters are often noble, beautiful and passionate, but above all, they're unlucky.
Over the years of telling stories in the capital of this nation of storytellers, Candlelit Tales have developed and refined a uniquely expressive, naturalistic and modern style. Live music is the heartbeat of all the performances, and a live original music score composed by a team of talented musicians drives the rhythm of the storytelling, weaving through the tale and sweeping the listener away.
We take our favourite myths, and we don’t shy away from the sex and violence that was always present in the Irish storytelling tradition. We keep the depth, the wisdom, and the richness, and leaven it with humour, passion and playfulness to enchant audiences of all ages.
We will make you laugh, make you cry, and maybe even make you roar. We want to let these stories live again, and we need you to listen.
