Bluebeard’s Castle
PRLog - Jan. 9, 2012 - English Pocket Opera Company is delighted to announce a new production of Bartok’s Duke Bluebeard’s Castle. Performances are ‘promenade’ and, as such, audience members will have a unique introduction to the architecture of the brand new Platform Theatre and studio spaces at Central St. Martin’s College of Art new complex at Kings Cross.

Sung in English and directed by Paul Featherstone with Will Carslake as MD, this production is born of a unique 4-year collaboration between students at Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design, EPOC and several London schools. It promises to be a production of Bartok’s dark and mysterious operatic masterpiece unlike any other.

The audience will (literally) follow Judith (Anna Gregory / Hannah Pedley) as she discovers the secrets and horrors behind the seven locked doors in the castle of Duke Bluebeard (Dominic Barrand / Simon Wilding). Eight designers each create a space in this unique production. Performances run from 17th to 21st January
