First-look photos for Bach and Sons at the Bridge Theatre have been revealed.

Appearing in the piece are Simon Russell Beale as J S Bach, alongside Samuel Blenkin as Carl, Pandora Colin as Maria Barbara, Ruth Lass as Katharina, Douggie McMeekin as Wilhelm, Racheal Ofori as Anna Magdalena and Pravessh Rana as Frederick the Great.

Based on the life and times of the iconic composer (who had something of a tempestuous side) as well as that of his family, the show plays to 9 September 2021, opening on 29 June.
