Katherine Jenkins and Alfie Boe to star in ENO's Carousel
Lonny Price returns to direct following his acclaimed production of Sunset Boulevard
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 and naïve mill worker Julie Jordan.
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".
Welsh lyric mezzo soprano Jenkins has twice been honoured with the Classic Brit Awards Album of the Year. Her most recent release, "Home Sweet Home" was her seventh album to reach number one in the charts.
Boe's stage credits include Jean Valjean in the West End and Broadway productions of Les Miserables, and Gary Barlow's Finding Neverland on Broadway.
Carousel will run at the London Coliseum from 11 April to 13 May, with previews from 7 April 2017.
