From the Olivier-winning producer of hits Top Hat and The Play That Goes WrongFederico Fellini’s La Strada (The Road) is one of the true masterpieces of modern cinema, winning the Academy award in 1957 for the movie starring Anthony Quinn. This visually stunning new stage adaptation directed by Olivier Award nominee Sally Cookson (Jane Eyre National Theatre, Hetty Feather West End), boasts a beautiful score by Benji Bower, with songs performed live on stage by a multi-talented cast.
The story of wide-eyed Gelsomina, who is sold by her penniless mother to Zampano, a travelling sideshow strongman, unfolds as they journey through the Italian countryside performing for their keep. Their perilous road trip leads them to a ragtag travelling circus where they meet Il Matto the tightrope walker who rekindles Gelsomina’s spirit with a new found confidence.
In this much-anticipated new stage production, Fellini’s profoundly impassioned and deeply involving story is sure to stimulate the senses, fire emotions and stir the soul.
