BWW Review: Women's Theatre Festival's GOBLIN MARKET Makes for a Visual Feast BWW Review: Women's Theatre Festival's GOBLIN MARKET Makes for a Visual Feast
by Lauren Van Hemert - Jul 15, 2018

Long before Disney introduced the world to Anna and Elsa, Christina Rosetti penned GOBLIN MARKET, a fairytale narrative poem about the power of sisterly love. In Rosetti's poem, two sisters, Lizzie and Laura, triumphantly overcome the temptation of goblin men in a haunted wood. Rosetti's piece has long been the subject of much interpretation and creative adaptations, including a musical version, which premiered at New York's Circle in the Square Theatre Downtown in 1986. This weekend. GOBLIN MARKET opened at Burning Coal Theatre as part of The Women's Theatre Festival. Fusing together classical elements of both ballet and opera, GOBLIN MARKET is a visual feast, from Miyuki Su's fantastical set design to Jennifer Palmer's (The Carolina Ballet) mesmerizing choreography.

BWW Interview: Women's Theatre Festival Artistic Director Ashley Popio Combines Art Forms to Elevate GOBLIN MARKET BWW Interview: Women's Theatre Festival Artistic Director Ashley Popio Combines Art Forms to Elevate GOBLIN MARKET
by Lauren Van Hemert - Jul 11, 2018

Christina Rosetti's poem 'The Goblin Market,' explores the themes of temptation, sacrifice, and the loss of innocence and has been the subject of varied interpretations and creative adaptations ever since its publication in 1862. One such adaptation is a musical version by Polly Pen and Peggy Harmon which premiered in 1985 and had a successful run off-Broadway at Circle in the Square. This week, Pen and Harmon's piece opens at Burning Coal Theatre as part of The Women's Theatre Festival, and Director Ashley Popio says Rosetti's poem is as timely as ever. 'Here are two sisters that are coming of age and what happens to them is they dare to step off the path and they are attacked by goblins,' she says. 'And isn't that sort of a metaphor for what happens to us as women today if we dare to stray from the path.' 'So, one of the reasons we chose to cast this show with one black sister and one white sister, is we wanted to show that through intersectional feminism, women supporting each other no matter what, putting sisterhood first, that we can indeed fight those goblins together and emerge triumphant,' she adds. The show, which marks the first time The Women's Theatre Festival has embarked on a musical, combines elements of theater, ballet, and classical music to create an air of magic, which Popio calls addictive.
