The Mongol Khan | London Coliseum | 2023

The Mongol Khan

Greed, deceit, betrayal - an Empire on the brink of collapse. Don’t miss this epic Mongolian spectacle with a haunting original score, dance and puppetry inspired by the nomadic traditions of the steppe.

Mongolia 2000 years ago. A brutal succession battle threatens the very stability of the Empire. As the great Khan struggles to maintain his supremacy, a plot hatches that will forever alter the balance of power.

Mongolia’s leading theatre company comes to the UK for the very first time with a lavish production which explores the evolution of ancient Mongolian culture and features an ensemble of over 70!

This gripping story is brought to life with a stunning original score, dance and puppetry, with elaborate sets and costumes all inspired by the traditional nomadic culture of the Hunnic Empire.

This spectacular production celebrates 60 years of Anglo-Mongolian relations and cultural exchange. Bordered by China and Russia, Mongolia is one of the world’s best kept secrets as a travel destination for adventure-fuelled people and lovers of luxury alike. Captivating, rugged expanses, stunningly beautiful landscapes, a vast unspoilt wilderness, extremely welcoming people and nomadic tribes with rich traditions, Mongolia has it all.

The Mongol Khan serves as an introduction to this country and its history to give would-be travellers a taste of the culture and history.

The show will be in Mongolian with English words (surtitles – using Timberlake Wertenbaker’s translation) displayed above the stage.
