Paradise Lost is a new monodrama based on Milton’s epic text written by Cambridge composer and lyricist Geoff Page, the composer of many successful musicals including Typhoid Mary and The Odyssey: An Epic Musical.
The performer is the world famous American countertenor Lawrence Zazzo, a regular at most of the world’s leading opera houses including The Royal Opera House, Vienna, Paris, Berlin and the Metropolitan Opera, New York. Lawrence plays all the roles (Satan, Adam, Eve, Christ and the narrator) and the aesthetic, as befits a composer of musicals, is infectiously catchy!
‘He deserves to be known as the king of countertenors.’
‘A countertenor of gorgeous tone, superb control throughout the range, excellent musicianship and handsome bearing.’
NEW YORK TIMES
‘Endearing, energetic, and ever so slightly silly, it is impossible to leave this show without a smile on your face.’
Join us in the The Shed after the concert for a chance to join in a 30 minute rendition of The Beatles’ Hey Jude. Bring any instrument and make some noise!
