Don’t miss this multi-faceted live production of music and film… re-imagining the artistic vision and striking meaning of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis, the prescient 1927 film about a foreboding future.
In this full-throttle rock-opera, the story takes place in a highly stylised futuristic city where a beautiful, exotic utopia exists above a depressing underworld populated by faceless, mistreated workers. Audiences today can identify with the film’s deeper moral desires and the underlying political themes, which today still resonate.
The work will incorporate this magnificent film underpinned by live music written and performed by HoneyBird. Special guests include Ami Carney on drums and percussion, Jon May on keys, Sonia McMahon as second vocalist and distinguished local string quartet ‘Sedici Corde’. Plus an updated narrative arc for this classic by Ian Golding.
A special pre-show presentation ‘The Alice Project’ written by Nycole Prowse with a score by Mark Ferris will be debuted at the Maleny show and again at the Eumundi performance. A theatrical first, not to be missed!
