A raucous, wall-of-sound rock opera, Vigilante tells the explosive true tale of a ruthless Irish immigrant family and an entire town bent on revenge. Based on the unsolved 1880 massacre of Ontario's notorious Donnelly family, Vigilante is a stomping, swaggering and compulsively watchable story about frontier justice. This outlaw offspring of Sweeney Todd and The Threepenny Opera walks the razor's edge - aggressively inventive, visually stunning and absolutely electrifying. Vigilante marks the return of Edmonton's astonishing Catalyst Theatre (Nevermore), following major tours to London and New York. Vigilante est un opéra rock retentissant et décoiffant relatant l'histoire vécue d'une famille d'immigrants irlandais bagarreurs, et d'une ville entièrement liguée contre eux. Basé sur le mystère irrésolu du massacre, en 1880, de la tristement célèbre famille Donnelly en Ontario, Vigilante est une histoire trépidante, crâneuse et totalement captivante de justice expéditive.
