World premiere of new musical ‘Domitius’ to play a strictly limited run at London’s Conway Hall this August!

DOMITIUS, a brand new musical about infamous Roman Emperor Nero and his burning desire to be a performer, at any cost, will have its worldwide debut at London’s Conway Hall from 6 to 8 August 2021, playing a strictly limited 6-performance run.

DOMITIUS tells the story of Nero, and how his pursuit of the arts leads him to all the infamous decisions of his reign.

The musical has a libretto by Henry Cao, music, lyrics and libretto by Lux Knightley (shortlisted for NCEM’s Young Composer Award 2021) and music and lyrics by Luke McCormick.

Thrust into power at the tender age of sixteen, young Roman Emperor Nero seeks life as a musician and performer, and passionately chases this dream, but a series of threats against his life may prove to be his final act.

1st century Roman history, politics and characters are brought to musical life through a contemporary score inspired by the 1970s and 1980s and a script laced with 21st century pop culture references and humour.

Directed by Lux Knightley & Luke McCormick, the cast includes Judy Blu, Stewart Briggs, Matt Colyer, Tom Driver, Mahalia Fontaine, Ben Gad-Briggs, Max Himmelreich, Hannah Kiss, David Malcolm, Reece Raymond and Nicolle Smartt

The Choreographer & Production Assistant is Bethan Carys and Lighting Design is by Petr Vocka.

The group hopes to push the West End towards positive change for their off-stage roles and encourage other young underrepresented writers and creators to take up the pen.
