Description

Presented by two of Iceland's finest actors, experience the Icelandic Sagas: The Greatest hits. This show is a 75 minute theatrical comedy roller coaster ride through Iceland’s literary heritage.

The Icelandic Sagas are the 40 true stories of the first settlers of Iceland - well, at least Icelanders say they’re true. Everyone else says: 'get out of here'! But everyone agrees they are fantastic tales of worthy men and feisty women from a thousand years ago. Stories of viking raids abroad and blood-feuds at home. Passed down the generations and preserved on calf-skin manuscripts they are the crown jewels of Icelandic culture, amazing stories of ordinary vikings, facing ordinary viking problems - like how to get your wife to stop killing your neighbor’s slaves, what to do when someone calls you a horse-ass-eater and how to sue your brother in-law for not living up to your sister’s... expectations.

Step into the world Hallgerda Long-Pants, Gunnlaug Serpent Tongue, Killer-Glum, Harald with the great hair-do, Mjoll the-biggest-of-all-women-who-were-not-giants and Leif the Lucky who found America… and lost it again.

Never heard of them? Come and get to know them all in Icelandic Sagas - The Greatest Hits. Be thrilled, entertained and intrigued - and find out what it really means to toss a pair of blue pants into an Icelanders face - really.

This show is running for a limited time only in Reykjavik's spectacularly designed concert hall located near the Old Harbour.
