Casting news

FINAL casting has been announced for the world premiere of Trioperas. Re-creating three of the most popular operas ever written – Turandot, Madame Butterfly and Carmen – it runs at the Peacock Theatre from May 23 to July 1, 2018.

Trioperas brings together ten multi-talented male performers to perform the various colourful roles, all of which require a range of skill sets.

Adam Corrigan, Llandyll Gove, Adam Margilewski, Matthew McCabe, Richard Munday, Daniel Slade are joined by award-winning Royal Opera House principal Yuriy Yurchuk; Wushu World Champions Cham Dong Ming and Toh Chin Xian; and the only actor in the world to have starred as Young Simba and Adult Simba in Disney’s The Lion King, Naoto Kaiho from Japan.

Lucy Aiston and Anastacia Quinton-Smith also join the previously announced cast of female performers – Sianna Bruce, Keedie Green, Sara Hamilton, Lucy Kay, Martina Mennell, Shoreina Pereira, and Chiara Vinci.

Creator, Pamela Tan-Nicholson, said: “The spirit of sharing and learning among all these amazingly talented and motivated artists makes me both inspired and humbled. The team is diverse – some come from the world of classical opera, others from quite different artistic disciplines. What glues them together is a common ethos believing that music, opera included, exists for universal appreciation.

“We all relish the idea of looking at opera afresh. Trioperas is not a history tour of three fossilized operas. The times they are a-changing, and we say – opera too. My hope is that even people who don’t know or don’t like traditional opera will see the show and come away feeling that they have been properly entertained and emotionally touched by three stories told entirely through dramatic lyrics set to glorious music and performed with no-holds barred action. Opera should be like that – no more no less. Opera is for everyone- of any age – to love.”
