Script & Lyrics: Oscar Hammerstein II / Music; Richard Rodgers
Teatre Grec | 28/07 - 29/07
After achieving unprecedented success with Oklahoma!, the artistic pair formed by the librettist Oscar Hammerstein II and the composer Richard Rodgers premiered on Broadway in 1945 a second piece of joint work. An adapted story by the Hungarian author Feren Molnárc about a tough tradesman in love with a young worker. Both are going to live together, but the scandal that involves a love considered immoral at that time, causes them to lose their jobs. But the girl is pregnant and the protagonist, Billy Bigelow, to ensure a future of the young girl and the baby to be born, embarks on a theft of tragic consequences. It is a story of love and second chances full of classic themes in the history of musicals that range from If I Loved You to You'll Never Walk Alone.
Daniel Anglès y Xavier Torras take for the first time live to the Barcelona scene, a musical that takes the form of a large-scale show, with a massive musical set on stage, a luxury cast headed by Nina and Miquel Fernández... and a world of overflowing emotions that will move you in the way that only the classics of the musical can do it.
A production of el Grec 2018 Festival of Barcelona and EM+P Productions
Carousel in concert is shown thanks to a special agreement with R&H Theatricals Europe.
