Screen Shot 2018-04-18 at 11.17.17Cult British music trio The Tiger Lillies presents the world premiere of Corrido de la Sangre at HOME Manchester, Fri 20 April – Sat 5 May 2018


Nominated for a Grammy and winners of a prestigious Olivier Award, The Tiger Lillies have found worldwide recognition for their unique sound and style that merges the macabre magic of pre-war Berlin with the savage edge of punk.


A Corrido singer and his band return from the realm of the dead to haunt their killer. This dark story of intrigue, vengeance, murder, and the mayhem of a romance gone bad, is set in a small dusty town in the lands between Mexico and the US.


The singer relays the tale of his rise and fall and the songs of life at the border, where mythical creatures from Aztec times still haunt the night. This is a realm where folklore and real-life merge, where audiences meet a knight, an evil king, a damsel in distress and the Saint of the Sinners.


For tickets: £10 – £23, please visit or contact the HOME box office on 0161 200 1500. Corrido de la Sangre is part of HOME’s annual ¡Viva! festival of film, theatre, and art from the Spanish-speaking world.


A CD of music from the show will available from Friday 20 April at the HOME bookshop, iTunes, and from the band’s website
