In a Victorian opium den, Willow sacrifices her life to pay off her father’s debt by working as a prostitute in an occult society called "The Cave." In this musical exploration of fairy tales, sacrifice, and lust, Willow fights to find light not only in a dark and enchanting underworld but also within herself.


“The Cave: A Folk Opera” is inspired by the classic fairy tale “Beauty and the Beast” and told entirely through original folk music. Blending concert-style performances with shadow puppets and lyrical choreography, “The Cave: A Folk Opera” is sexy, enchanting, and examines how far we go for the people we love. This dark interpretation of a beloved tale is not your childhood “Beauty and the Beast.”
