Opera North’s acclaimed production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s CAROUSEL returns for a tour of UK and Ireland following its 2012-13 engagements across the UK, in London’s Barbican Centre, and a historic run at the Théâtre du Châtelet, Paris.
This production received 5 star reviews for its first performances in Leeds, Salford and at the Barbican. Directed by Jo Davies, and conducted by James Holmes, it brings the musical’s New England community to life with a full orchestra and chorus, and a classically-trained cast, including Keith Higham as Billy Bigelow, Gillene Butterfield as Julie Jordan, and Yvonne Howard as Nettie.
UK venues for the tour of CAROUSEL in 2015 include Leeds Grand Theatre, Theatre Royal Norwich and Edinburgh Festival Theatre, before travelling to the Republic of Ireland for further performances in Dublin.
An instant hit with audiences and critics alike, it has been praised as an “exhilarating” show which “does great honour to a rich piece of musical theatre” (Daily Telegraph); “a real masterpiece […] totally charming” (Mail on Sunday); “got me hook, line and sinker” (The Times); “tremendously uplifting” (Financial Times) and “easily the best CAROUSEL since Nicholas Hytner’s National Theatre revival nearly 20 years ago” (The Guardian).
