The Enchanted Pig
Music by Jonathan Dove
Libretto by Alasdair Middleton
Based on a Romanian folktale

A love story filled with mud, mischief and magic. When you're a princess, you expect a fairy tale wedding. You don't expect your husband to be hairy, smelly and a genuine pig. The pig, of course, is an enchanted prince but Princess Flora loses him almost as soon as she finds him. Taking her fate into her own hands, she ventures to the ends of the earth and even into the night sky to rescue her love.

This UK university student premiere is directed by Will Jackson and musically directed by Daniel Mahoney, with a talented student cast from the University of Birmingham.
