The Golden Fish

Performance Dates
Opening Performance

When a kind, poor fisherman discovers a wish-granting fish, he selflessly releases the creature back into the ocean. While content with his simple life, his wife’s extravagant desires soon drive him to re-capture the magical fish and make her dreams a reality– but not without cost.

Based on The Brothers Grimm tale, The Golden Fish weaves together themes of greed, love, and selflessness, told through Synetic’s striking imagery and expressive movement.
