First look at Alfie Boe and Katherine Jenkins in rehearsals for Carousel
ENO's production opens at the London Coliseum in April
Rodgers and Hammerstein's classic musical is a romantic fantasy set both in heaven and on earth, tracking the tragic New England love story of fast-talking carousel barker Billy Bigelow (Boe) and naïve mill worker Julie Jordan (Jenkins). ENO's production is directed by Lonny Price and will open at the London Coliseum in April.
After premiering on Broadway in 1945, it was subsequently made into a Hollywood film starring Shirley Jones and Gordon McRae. The score includes "Mister Snow", "Soliloquy", "What's the Use of Wond'rin" and "You'll Never Walk Alone".
Carousel will run at the London Coliseum from 11 April to 13 May, with previews from 7 April 2017.
