This stunning world premiere from the Gate Theatre and Theatre Lovett explores the fascinating and turbulent life of author Hans Christian Andersen through the lens of his beloved tale, The Steadfast Tin Soldier.
With a captivating blend of song, dance and storytelling, this timely production sees Andersen navigate personal heartbreak as he struggles to make his way as an artist in a Europe ravaged by war.
Dark, moving, imaginative and funny, The Tin Soldier is narrated by Louis Lovett with original music by Conor Linehan. Featuring French dancer Kévin Coquelard and Ukrainian singer Olesya Zdorovetska, this unforgettable show lifts Andersen’s story off the page into a theatrical experience like no other.
“Theatre Lovett, one of the most imaginative and indispensable companies at work today.”
