We all know Robin Hood, don’t we? The righteous hero that steals from the rich to give to the poor?

Well, what if we didn’t? What if there was something else behind that facade, a dark secret perhaps?

For their third production, The opera Story recast the Robin Hood story under a different light, in a contemporary retelling by librettists Zoe Palmer and Rebecca Hurst that re-thinks his struggles and motivations. Set to beautiful music by up-and-coming composer Dani Howard, and in a multi-floor production directed by Polly Graham, this is a production that breathes new life into a familiar story by bringing out a side of Robin Hood and the characters around him that is deeper than what we see in the old tales.
