We Will Rock You The Musical 31 January – 17 February 2019, Milan, Teatro Ciak
“WE WILL ROCK YOU” THE MUSICAL by QUEEN and BEN ELTON
Back on tour “We Will Rock You”, the colossal show inspired by the greatest hits of the Queen and among the most represented musicals in the world. After the great success of 2009 and 2010, the tour starts again in October 2018 for a new, highly anticipated season in our country.
In 2019 prepared to attend a new production of “We Will Rock You”, conceived especially for Italy by Claudio Trotta for Barley Arts. Intact history, characters and original music, performed strictly live, this new staging is careful to emphasize the political, current and visionary at the base of the musical but is completely renovated in every other respect: from the Regia, entrusted to the candidate Lawrence Olivier Award Tim Luscombe, at the Scenography conceived by Colin Mayes, up to the Choreography curated by Gail Richardson. The Artistic Direction is entrusted to Valentina Ferrari, already confirmed in the role of ‘Killer Queen’, while Riccardo Di Paola is in the Musical Direction and Cristina Trotta in the executive production.
The cast will also be completely renewed: on May 16th the auditions will begin in Milan to select the actors, the musicians and the ballet. All the details and information on how to apply are available at www.wewillrockyou-themusical.it.
For the new seasons the artistic project will privilege the actualization and the contemporaneity of the story. A unique show of its kind that, with great foresight, has hypothesized, in a dystopian future in which rock is banned and its followers forced to hide, a society victim of globalization more total and at the mercy of a multinational company that controls not only the music but the life itself of individuals. Over 8 million spectators, 2700 performances and 12 consecutive years of performances in London: these are the numbers of “We Will Rock You”, the musical that staged 24 of Queen’s major hits and reflects the live performance of the historic band . The show was produced by Ben Elton in collaboration with Roger Taylor and Brian May. The show debuted at the Dominion Theater in London on May 12, 2002 and the success was so striking that it entered the Top 10 of the longest-running shows in the history of the West End. The musical debuted in Italy on December 4, 2009 at the Allianz Theater in Milan , also proving great public success in our country. To decree such acceptance the choice, shared by the Queen themselves, to keep the songs in English (except two) and to translate and readjust only the dialogues.
