The Canterville Ghost

musical in 2 acts based on Oscar Wilde’s short story

Libretto by D. Roubin

The play tells the tragic and mysterious story of Sir Simon’s ghost. The action takes place in the castle with centuries old family curse, but Americans, who bought it, consider it just a fairytale. However, winsome, explosive and energetic ghost will prove the opposite… The stage set will bring you to antique ancestral castle with its romanticism and ghosts. And for more pragmatic spectators there is a detective plot, hidden in poetic message:
When a gentle girl can win a prayer from out the lips of sin
When a child gives up tears and the baron almond bears
When the silent chapel bell sounds the ghostly sinners knell
Then shall all the house be still, and peace shall come to Canterville.
