The classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Carousel is set for a "bold new interpretation" by Morphic Graffiti, at the Arcola Theatre in Dalston, east London from 18 June to 19 July 2014.
Based on the play Liliom by Ferenc Molnár, the 1945 musical is one of Rodgers and Hammerstein's most popular works, having been performed numerous times on Broadway and in the West End. The score features numbers such as "If I Loved You", "June is Burstin' Out All Over" and the anthemic "You'll Never Walk Alone", and follows mill worker Julie Jordan as she falls in love with carousel barker Billy Bigelow.
Morphic Graffiti's production will feature new orchestrations by Mark Cumberland, with musical supervision by Larry Blank. Direction will be by Luke Fredericks, and choreography by Lee Proud. The company describe themselves as practitioners who aim to "create inventive and inspiring productions, and innovative reimaginings of classic works".
