Rodgers & Hammersteinís iconic musical Carousel
comes to the London Coliseum, starring Alfie Boe and Katherine Jenkins on stage
together for the very first time. They will be joined by members of ENOís
award-winning Orchestra and Chorus.
Fifteen years after getting caught up in an armed robbery and taking his own life, the charming carousel barker Billy Bigelow gets a chance to return to earth and make amends. Discovering that his daughter Louise has grown into a lonely, troubled teenager, haunted by her fatherís legacy, Billy vows to restore pride to his family in the musical voted by Time as the greatest of the 20th Century.
"Carousel will be the third production in our musical theatre partnership with the GradeLinnit Company. The partnership has produced highly acclaimed runs of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2015) and Sunset Boulevard (2016), as well as presenting us with a fantastic opportunity to share our work at the London Coliseum with the widest possible audience. Alfie Boe and Katherine Jenkins will perform the roles of Billy Bigelow and Julie Jordan in this semi-staged production."
