Here Lies Love

Here Lies Love is now Sold Out - but extra £20 tickets are released every Friday at 12pm for the following week's performances. More info below.

Fresh from taking New York by storm, this revolutionary musical experience by David Byrne and Fatboy Slim arrives at the National Theatre for a strictly limited run.

‘A life-giving, roof-raising, booty-shaking blast of pure joy.’
Vogue

Here Lies Love traces the astonishing journey of Imelda Marcos, First Lady of the Philippines, from her meteoric rise to power to descent into infamy and disgrace.

The new Dorfman Theatre is transformed into a pulsating club for this immersive theatrical event; Alex Timbers’ production combines heart-pounding beats with adrenaline-fuelled choreography and a remarkable 360-degree staging.

Dress comfortably, and come ready to dance!

Suitable for 14yrs+
