In the year 830, a band of vikings raids a Saxon nunnery. But when the battle goes sore, Sven, an inexperienced viking, is separated from his clansmen. Needing to find a way back to Norway, he makes a hostage of a nun named Mary. Together they face a perilous voyage on a stolen ship, a journey that takes them to the edge of life and into the magical realm of the gods.
What began as a successful Kickstarter project and a rocking album, then grew into a series of concerts, music videos, and a full-scale production, is back for its second run, bigger and better than before. Stephen Gashler’s VALHALLA | A NORDIC ROCK OPERA, produced by Great Hall Theatrical Experiences at the Angelus Theatre, is directed by Bethany Taylor.
