The Forbidden Door

Welcome to a cinema of the mind- with their visceral combination of live music and dynamic storytelling, The Devil’s Violin weave an enchantment of melody and mystery.

Don't open that door!

As soon as the rule is laid down, we know it will be broken. Once the door is opened, then what? - adventures! All of us love a good tale, and this is a wonderful one.
Expect love, loss, drama, danger, horror, humour, twists and trials.

How far is too far?

The Devil's Violin has been breathing new life into the ancient art of storytelling since 2006. Acclaimed storyteller Daniel Morden is joined by virtuoso musicians Sarah Moody, Dylan Fowler and Oliver Wilson-Dickson. Drawing on influences from Folk and World to Jazz and Classical, the music and story work as one, transporting you into a world of the imagination.

Suitable for ages 12+

"This is masterful, theatrical storytelling delivered with great feeling for the dramatic pause, the dark imagery evoking all shades of emotion from horror to joy, while the songs and stories continue to resonate deeply in the bones of the listener long afterwards." Venue Magazine

“A scintillating combination of music, sound and story” The Times

“An enchantment, a work that walks the line between life and death, which recognises with the power of voice and the power of music, that there is magic everywhere.” The Times
