About the Show/Event
Information for The Monstrous Child at Royal Opera House, West End (Play). Hel is the daughter of Norse god Loki and the giantess Angrboda. She'd be an ordinary teenager if it wasn't for the fact that she's half girl and half corpse. A prophecy predicts that Hel's brothers are fated to bring forth the end of days, and in an attempt to prevent this the Gods kidnap all three of Loki's monstrous children and take them to Asgard. Here, Hel becomes infatuated with Baldr, son of Odin (the king of the Gods). Sung in English.
