This Hallowe’en, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is brought to life by the electrifying impact of live rock music. Witness a faithful re-telling of the classic gothic novel, during a night at the opera like no other.
‘Did I request thee, Maker, from my clay
To mould me man? Did I solicit thee
From darkness to promote me?’
– John Milton, Paradise Lost
Richard Campbell’s intense and dramatic score recounts the tale of a man whose diabolical ambition leads him to a life of torment and guilt, and a creature made monster by abandonment and prejudice.
‘I ought to be thy Adam, but I am rather the fallen angel, whom thou drivest from joy for no misdeed.’
– Mary Shelley, Frankenstein
Orpheus Studio Productions and The Lansbury Players present a staged adaptation of Richard Campbell’s progressive rock concept album Frankenstein, a thrilling musical portrayal of the original sci-fi horror.
‘An engaging, transportive listen… Remember the name.’
– Grant Moon, Prog Magazine
