Winner of four Tony Awards, including Best Musical Revival, & now tipped to be London’s theatrical event of 2018, the Lincoln Center Theater’s production of Rodgers Hammerstein’s The King and I comes to London’s iconic Palladium in Spring 2018. Featuring Broadway stars – Kelli O’Hara, reprising her Tony Award-winning performance, and Tony & Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe.
The King and I features a company over 50 world-class performers & a superior score of treasured songs including; Whistle a Happy Tune, Getting to Know You & Shall We Dance. Set in 1860’s Bangkok, it tells the story of the unconventional relationship that develops between the King of Siam & Anna, a British schoolteacher whom the King brings to teach his many wives and children.
Carmen is the best-known work by French composer Georges Bizet, and one of the most famous operas in the entire art form – numbers such as the Habanera and the Toreador Song have permeated the popular consciousness as little else has. The opera’s heady combination of passion, sensuality and violence initially proved too much for the stage, and it was a critical failure on its 1875 premiere. Bizet died shortly after, and never learned of the spectacular success his Carmen would achieve: the opera has been performed more than five hundred times at Covent Garden alone. This ever-popular opera is given a fresh point of view in Barrie Kosky’s highly physical production, originally created for Frankfurt Opera.
From its strident opening chords, Tosca conjures up a world of political instability and menace. The Chief of Police, Scarpia – one of the most malevolent villains in opera – ruthlessly pursues & tortures enemies of the state. His dark, demonic music contrasts with the expansive melodies of the idealistic lovers, Tosca and Cavaradossi, who express their passion in sublime arias, including ‘Vissi d’arte’ and ‘E lucevan le stelle’. Giacomo Puccini’s dramatic work was a hit with audiences on its 1900 premiere & it remains one of the most performed of all operas with its gripping plot and glorious music. Puccini’s meticulously researched score is infused with the same authentic detail, from distant cannon fire during the Act I to tolling church bells.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that most iconic concept albums worth their salt will eventually be adapted into a rock and roll musical experience to be enjoyed by euphoric audiences. Surprising then, that it took so long for Jim Steinman and Meatloaf’s influential rock opera to make it to the stage, but fear not, for it will be exploding onto the West End in Spring 2017.
