Romance of the Rose Productions has announced the world premiere of brand new musical Knights of the Rose will take place at the Arts Theatre from the 29th June.
In this epic tale of love, betrayal and sacrifice, the noble Knights of the Rose must defend their House and their honour. Even as the chivalrous Knights return from a glorious victory, a greater threat against the kingdom stirs. As they face the greatest battle of the Age, and betrayal threatens to tear them apart, can true love and honour triumph?
Created by Jennifer Marsden, this brand new medieval set musical is set to feature a playlist formed of classic rock songs including those by Bon Jovi, Bonnie Tyler, Meatloaf and No Doubt.
The musical will interweave literature from Marlowe, Shakespeare and Chaucer with songs such as Blaze of Glory, Total Eclipse of the Heart and Don’t Speak, playing for a limited nine week run in London.
The production will be directed and choreographed by Racky Plews, whose previous credits include Thoroughly Modern Mille (UK Tour), Summer Holiday (UK Tour), American Idiot (West End and UK Tour), Footloose (West End and UK Tour) and Guys and Doll.
It will be designed by Diego Pitarch whose stage credits include Sunset Boulevard in London’s West End, Spend, Spend, Spend directed by Craig Revel-Horwood, which won a TMA award for Best Musical in 2009, the 2011 European tour of The Who’s Tommy, the 2013 UK and Ireland tour of Fiddler on the Roof starring Paul Michael Glaser as well as the 2017 touring production of The Addams Family and Crazy for You.
