Cruel - A Rock Opera on Tuesday 22nd October 2019
Combining a church organ with a full rock band, a string quartet and four of Transylvania’s top rock vocalists, Cruel is a stage experience which no-one will forget. From the Andrew Lloyd Webber of the Carpathian Mountains, Tibor Molnar, Cruel is a rock opera which introduces us to four characters who must find their way through a moral maze of love, lust, judgement and tragedy to follow their life’s destiny. Appearing at London’s stunning art-deco Troxy Theatre for one night only, audiences can expect a journey through Heaven and Earth by way of Mozart and AC/DC – Cruel has big themes and even bigger vibes.
Employing the Troxy’s Wurlitzer Organ, Cruel combines rock and classical music to really deliver a ‘rock opera’, featuring four lead vocalists including Andy Ghost, the lead vocalist of one of Romania’s biggest rock bands, Altar. With classical elements which take inspiration from composers such as Brahms, Schubert and Mozart and a rock band covering a range of Dream Theater-esque sonics through to AC/DC and even heavier sounds, Cruel is a fully immersive experience with live projections, lighting effects and more than a few surprises.
The audience will explore the emotional universe of the four characters and journey through their thoughts, doubts and temptations. A unique event for one night only – Cruel is not to be missed.
