Breaking Waves @ The King's Theatre


  • The King's Theatre 2 Leven Street Edinburgh, Scotland, EH3 United Kingdom (map)

The European premiere of Missy Mazzoli’s dark and daring opera, Breaking the Waves, takes place at the King’s Theatre as part of this summer’s Edinburgh International Festival.

Breaking the Waves is a wrenching moral drama about a woman’s twisted bargain with God. Based on Lars von Trier’s controversial film, US composer Missy Mazzoli’s opera won the 2017 Best New Opera Award at the Music Critics Association of North America and was shortlisted the same year for an International Opera Award.

You can enjoy pre-theatre meals at Henrick’s before the show or indulge in after show cocktails in the relaxing and comfortable setting of our little bar.

Enjoy a Scotch Old-fashioned, perfectly dry Martini, or sip away at chilled Marlborough Sauvignon. Crab cakes will go nicely with the New Zealand tipple.

While situated a two minute walk from the theatre you can be assured of making curtain call.

Pre-theatre meals of two or three courses available for £12.50 and £16 respectively.
