A different musical based on David Bowie’s creative universe.
One of the
last things David Bowie did before he left us was to collaborate with Irish
dramatist Enda Walsh on the musical Lazarus, a production where the plot is
inspired by Bowie’s film The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976). Lazarus creates a
musical span between the film’s soundtrack and Bowie’s last album Blackstar, where
we are treated to 18 of his finest compositions on the way. The result is a
unique stage production, or, as Mona Levin described the premiere in Aftenposten
newspaper earlier this year: “David Bowie’s Lazarus is not regular theatre, not
a regular musical, not a regular anything.»
Lazarus premiered in New York in 2015, and has
since been put on in London, Hamburg, and Wien, among other places. In Norway,
the musical is presented by Det Norske Teatret, directed by Anders T. Andersen.
On stage is a superbly skilled musical ensemble who moves you to your very core
and an outstanding orchestra. Dagny Drage Kleiva and Olav Myrtvedt are
responsible for scenography and costumes.
Due to popular demand, a third performance has been added on Wednesday 27 May at 21:30.
Due to changes to the final stage format, additional seating has been added at the front of the stalls after initial sales start for the first two shows.
