This has to be one of the most exciting shows to hit the West End in decades!
With a stunning cast led by Katherine Jenkins & Alfie Boe – this is ‘proper’ class by the English National Opera (ENO).
Rodgers & Hammerstein’s iconic musical Carousel comes to the London Coliseum in a semi-staged production from the 7th May for 30 nights only.
As well as Kathrine & Alfie, you’ll also get the stunning Brenda Edwards, Nicholas Lyndhurst, Alex Young & Derek Hagen.
As well as a stella cast, you’ll also get all of the hits including ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’, ‘If I Loved You’, ‘Mister Snow’ and ‘June is Bustin’ Out All Over’.
Enjoy Katherine Jenkins’ life story interview:
Lonny Price (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Sunset Boulevard) returns to the Coliseum to direct a strictly limited run of 41 performances.
Please note Katherine Jenkins will not appear on Tuesday 18 April 2017.
The production is scheduled to run for 41 performances from 7 April to 31 May 2017 at the iconic London venue.
Carousel is based on the play “Liliom” By Ferenc Molnar, as adapted By Benjamin F. Glazer. Set on the New England coastline.
Here’s Alfie Boe’s life story interview:
Carousel is a story of true love, loss and feelings left unspoken. Following the ill-fated love affair between bad boy Billy Bigelow and trusting Julie Jordan, this classic musical is deeply touching and will capture your heart.
The production will feature a full cast, choir and 40-strong ENO orchestra in a similar move to the previous spring musicals Sweeney Todd and Sunset Boulevard, also produced by Michael Linnit and Michael Grade at the London Coliseum.
