New Rock Opera Richard Campbell’s Frankenstein Premieres this Halloween in London

Frankenstein GravesOrpheus Studios in association with The Rose and Crown, South Ealing are pleased to announce the UK premiere of Richard Campbell’s Frankenstein on 31st October and 1st November 2013.

Following on from its world premiere in Washington DC, this unique adaptation on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein rocks its way to London. Re-­imagined as a rock metal opera, the story brings the creature to life and takes you on his journey through the eyes of Victor Frankenstein.

Originally recorded as a concept album, Richard Campbell’s Frankenstein was created from Richard’s fascination with Mary Shelley’s original novel, and the desire to create a rock opera that is truly worth of the label. Recorded at Richard’s studio in London, Orpheus Studio, the album was not only written and recorded by Richard, but he also played all of the instruments on the album.

Additional adaptation and lyrics provided by Carol Pestridge. Constituting this year’s Halloween offering from The Rose and Crown in South Ealing, the performance will feature a live band and a fabulous cast of talented singers.

Frankenstein is Richard’s second rock opera, his first was based upon the story of Orpheus and Eurydice and also released as a concept album.

In addition Richard recorded a Christmas rock medley that went viral and has been viewed over half a million times.
