Join the audience on a thrilling musical odyssey, transporting them back to the Viking world of 1000 AD. They can anticipate witnessing sword fights and romance, Viking warships and witches, all within a narrative grounded in true events that left an indelible mark on European history.
The story being told, however, transcends the boundaries of history. It unfolds as a strikingly familiar human drama featuring two kings facing insurmountable odds, replete with tears and laughter, love and faith. Yet, at every twist and turn, they must contend with opposing forces of betrayal, greed, ambition, and revenge.
Audiences will become fully immersed in the hauntingly beautiful set design, which whisks them away to the misty forests of Scandinavia. Here, they will enter an exotic world inhabited by Odin, Freja, and Thor, and bear witness to Viking trials and triumphs in a truly unique and unforgettable theatre performance.
This captivating saga is brought to life by a talented all-Malaysian cast of 21 individuals, under the guidance of an award-winning artistic team consisting of Aida Redza, Dominic Luk, and Karam Tabba. These young talents pour their hearts into their performances, delivering stirring ballads, war chants, and laments with boundless energy and passion, all accompanied by a live band and inspiring orchestral arrangements by Penang's own Vince de Leon.
