- Carousel [Opera North]
"Voted best musical of the 20th century by Time Magazine, Rodgers and Hammerstein's Carousel features some of the most powerful music ever written for the stage, including the immortal 'You'll Never Walk Alone', 'If I Loved You' and the joyful 'June is bustin' out all over'. A story of true love and the tragedy of feelings left unspoken, this classic American musical is deeply touching and will capture your heart.
In this major new production, the outstanding cast will be under the expert batons of James Holmes in Leeds and Salford, and Jonathan Gill in London. Directed by Jo Davies whose Ruddigore for Opera North became an instant hit, with designs by Anthony Ward (Oliver, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang; Peter Grimes and Gloriana for Opera North) and choreography by the renowned Kim Brandstrup, this will be a remarkably fresh interpretation of Carousel for the 21st century.
