Anthony Warlow & Jemma Rix to Star in Special Aussie Premiere of Jekyll & Hyde
Two Shows Only in Melbourne & Sydney
Anthony Warlow and Jemma Rix will star in the first Australian professional production of Jekyll & Hyde in Melbourne on Friday 25th October and in Sydney on Saturday 2nd November.
“I am thrilled to have been invited to recreate the music and lyrics of Frank Wildhorn and Leslie Bricusse for this 25th anniversary celebration of Jekyll & Hyde. After reimagining these iconic characters for the concept recording, I look forward to bringing Frank’s ‘Gothic Musical’ to the Australian stage in these concert performances,” said Anthony Warlow.
Based on the “The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde” by Robert Louis Stevenson, Jekyll & Hyde is a tale of tantalising suspense about the duplicity of human nature: restraint and transgression, brutality and civility – a singularly compelling story of Victorian dread.
“Anthony Warlow performing this magnificent musical thriller live on stage has been highly anticipated throughout the world for 25 years,” said Executive Producer Paul Fanning. “At last the popular, haunting and powerful music, especially ‘This is the Moment’ that Anthony is so well-known for, will come alive in Melbourne with Australia’s leading orchestra, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and in Sydney with the Sydney International Orchestra. The stunning, resplendent ‘Victorian Gothic’ costumes will truly lend to an unforgettable evening for audiences!”
Jekyll & Hyde features a thrilling score of pop rock hits from multi Grammy and Tony nominated Frank Wildhorn with the Book and Lyrics by double Oscar and Grammy winning Leslie Bricusse.
“I am absolutely thrilled that one of my favourite musical artists in the world, Anthony Warlow, is going to celebrate the 25th year of his amazing performance on the Jekyll & Hyde “Complete Works” double CD, with a series of theatrical concerts. Anthony has so many beautiful gifts as a musician and actor, and all were on display on those recordings. Anthony’s performance on those recordings introduced a whole generation of fans around the world to Jekyll & Hyde!,” said Frank Wildhorn.
