Roald Dahl's Matilda: The Musical
The Royal Shakespeare Company's award-winning musical based on the classic children's book by Roald Dahl is coming to Shanghai! It tells the story of young Matilda, a bright and curious child who loves books, as she deals with a shallow, cruel family, and a tyrannical school principal. Debuting in 2010, Matilda: The Musical holds the record for most Olivier awards for a musical and has toured internationally. With book by Dennis Kelly and songs by the excellent Tim Minchin, it is a stand-out of the genre. This performance is in English, and lasts 2.5 hours with an intermission. Tickets start at 280rmb.
