NEW Productions has today announced that Soldier of Orange – The Musical, the acclaimed historical Dutch theatre experience staged in a revolutionary 360-degree ‘surround set’, will open in a specially built new theatre in London’s Royal Docks in Autumn 2020.
Soldier of Orange – The Musical is based on the autobiography of Erik Hazelhoff Roelfzema, a renowned Dutch resistance fighter and British RAF war pilot, who chronicled his remarkable WWII experiences.
Soldier of Orange‘s pioneering use of ‘SceneAround’ staging – a revolutionary theatre technology especially engineered for this production and to be used in the UK for the first time – pulls the audience into the story delivering a unique theatrical experience.
The UK production will be directed by renowned Dutch director Theu Boermans. The book is written by Edwin de Vries, with music and lyrics written by Tom Harriman and Pamela Phillips Oland. This first English production is adapted for the British stage by Jeremy Brock.
