WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Disillusioned former soldier George Dury joins the ranks of his friend's newspaper, working his way up to become editor of the celebrity gossip column 'Bel-Ami'. Manipulating his way into the highest echelons of British society by charming, seducing and blackmailing those who cross his path, he is rewarded with ever-increasing wealth and prestige. But his ultimate goal will always be power.

Final year BA Musical Theatre students from London College of Music, University of West London, present a new musical by award-winning composer and LCM alumnus Alex Loveless, based on the Guy de Maupassant novel Bel-Ami. A contemporary take on celebrity, crony capitalism, press and political corruption, with a score including dance, rock and RnB, Bel-Ami continues LCM's tradition of developing new musicals.
