Heading to The O2 March 2021 for its UK premiere, Mr Adam is a multi-arts production, that sees the work of Welsh composer Sir Karl Jenkins has been transformed into a narrative piece by Kairat Kulbaev, Marat Bisengaliev, Vasily Barkhatov, and The Almaty symphony Orchestra.

This unique classical concert performance integrates innovative Black Trax technology to enable real-time tracking of 14 frames onstage so that compelling projections are layered with seamless choreography and
symphonic performance to create a revolutionary approach to presenting classical music. The live digital performance sees sixteen musicians perform live alongside pre-filmed scenes of the orchestra artists as well as actors, vloggers, ballet dancers, and children.

The production immerses the audience in the life of one man, an everyman: Mr. Adam. Taking place across sixteen episodes, the show tells a touching and hilarious story of birth, life, love, war and death to explore the power of humanity, community, and dreams. The incredible eclectic music by Sir Karl Jenkins is saturated with nomadic folk sound and national Kazakh
musical instruments to give a unique charm and originality to Mr. Adam’s life.

Talking about the news Mr. Adam soloist for the Almaty Symphony Orchestra, Marat Bisengaliev comments: “I’m really honoured to be part of this unique show – the brainchild of my dear friend and crazy dreamer,Kairat Kulbayev. This show has all the ingredients to become a success story: beautiful music by the most popular modern composer Karl Jenkins, the genius of the show creator Vasily Barkhatov, and our young, talented musicians who were carefully cherry-picked for this show.”

Mr Adam will run at The O2 from the 19th to the 21st March. Tickets are available here.
