News   Mysteries Spin Their Magic at West End's Peacock in March The Mysteries return to the West End in March, when they will be performed at the Peacock Theatre. The run is a short one, March 3-8.

First seen in its native South Africa in 2000, this unique and exhilarating journey through the bible, blends the ancient words through the vocal strengths of its multi-ethnic company, with the iconic stories being told in Xhosa, Zulu, Afrikaan and English. Working with director Mark Dornford-May and musical director Charles Hazelwood, the company draws on both the rich vocal traditions of the South African townships and on more modern rhythms created with oil drums and penny whistles.

Audiences have also been amazed by the visual spectacle of The Mysteries, as for two-and-a-half hours the stage is filled with light, color, fire and water, complementing the beauty of the performers and the music they create.
