A brand new musical is charging into the West End this summer and it is going to rock. Jennifer Marsden’s Shakespeare-themed musical Knights Of The Rose – which will feature some of the greatest rock songs in history – will invade The Arts Theatre for a strictly limited run.
The brand new classic rock musical tells a tale of honour, love and bloodshed. The noble Knights of the Rose must defend their House, yet when they return from battle victorious, they find there’s a greater threat to their kingdom. Can true love and honour triumph amidst the greatest battle they’ve ever faced?
Knights Of The Rose’s epic soundtrack is packed with timeless rock songs. With five Bon Jovi songs, two Bonnie Tyler classics, and tracks from No Doubt, Meatloaf, The Calling, and The Hollies, you’ll have to stop yourself from singing along.
Expect to tap your feet along to: Blaze Of Glory, Holding Out For A Hero, Total Eclipse Of The Heart, Don’t Speak, and Wherever You Will Go. There will also be interludes of Mozart’s Marriage Of Fiagaro: Part IV and Purcell’s King Arthur: Third Act.
Accompanying the medieval tale and perennial playlist will be literature by Marlowe, Shakespeare, and Chaucer. Knights Of The Rose is a glorious fusion of popular culture, evocative of Game Of Thrones and Bat Out Of Hell.
This high-voltage musical directed by Racky Plews is making its world debut. It will run from 29 June to 26 August 2018, with press night on 5 July.
