Oscar Wilde’s The Selfish Giant
A new Folk Opera by Guy Chambers
The Selfish Giant has a beautiful garden, but he won’t let any of the children play in it. Winter comes and never leaves. The Giant looks over his garden from his tall window. What will he do?
Don’t miss this limited run of a new folk opera, adapted from Oscar Wilde’s classic children’s story by three-time BRIT and Ivor Novello award-winning composer, Guy Chambers, who has written No. 1 songs with Robbie Williams including Angels, Feel and Let Me Entertain You.
The Selfish Giant is produced by former Shakespeare's Globe artistic director Dominic Dromgoole’s production company, Classic Spring, and is directed by Bill Buckhurst - whose Pie and Mash shop Sweeney Todd is currently playing on Broadway.
The cast are joined on stage by a large band of extraordinary musicians in a unique concert-staging that will transport audiences young and old to a magical world through music.
The Selfish Giant was showing at the Royal & Derngate Theatre, Northampton from the 4th-7th April and the Vaudeville Theatre, London from the 10-14th April.
An album of the soundtrack to this magical folk opera can be downloaded and purchased here.
