Katherine Jenkins and Alfie Boe will star for the first time together in the West End as Julie Jordan and Billy Bigelow in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel, the third production in the partnership between English National Opera (ENO) and the GradeLinnit Company. Lonny Price will direct this semi-staged production for a limited run of 41 performances at ENO’s London Coliseum.
Today, Wednesday 7th December 2016, Jenkins and Boe met on stage at the London Coliseum where in April next year they will lead the company in the production.
Beginning on 7th April 2017, with press night on 11th April 2017 at 7pm, the final performance in this strictly limited five-week run takes place on 13 May 2017. ENO award-winning 40-piece orchestra and chorus will accompany the cast in this semi-staged production.
When the charming Carousel Barker, Billy Bigelow falls in love with Julie Jordan, little do they realise that their relationship will end in tragedy. Fifteen years after getting caught up in an armed robbery, Billy gets the chance to redeem his past and restore pride to his family.
Carousel is presented by Michael Linnit and Michael Grade with English National Opera who have previously presented the critically acclaimed runs of Sweeney Todd with Emma Thompson and Bryn Terfel and Sunset Boulevard with Glenn Close. The GradeLinnit Company are currently producing 42nd
Street, to open March 2017 at The Theatre Royal Drury Lane.
