Iconic musical Sunset Boulevard is to play a one-night-only concert at the Royal Albert Hall.
The special concert on 3 December 2021 follows a critically acclaimed performance at Alexandra Palace earlier this year.
Returning to the cast are stars Mazz Murray (Mamma Mia; We Will Rock You) as Norma Desmond, Ramin Karimloo (Les Misérables; Phantom of the Opera) as Joe Gillis, Zizi Strallen (Mary Poppins) as Betty Schaefer and Jeremy Secomb (Les Misérables) as Max von Mayerling.
The full company is completed by Geoffrey Aymer, Ashley Campbell, Perola Congo, Momar Diagne, Shailan Gohil, Chloe Hart, Aimee Hodnett, Freddie King, Sejal Keshwala, Evie Rose Lane, Kate O’Donnell, David Shaw Parker, Ashley Samuels, Cameron Sharp and Bleu Woodward.
The 19-strong cast will be accompanied by a 40-piece orchestra on the evening, conducted by Alex Parker.
Presented by The Alpha Family, in association with Quick Fantastic, the concert is directed by Jordan Murphy, with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Christopher Hampton and Don Black, orchestrations by David Cullen and Andrew Lloyd Webber, choreography by Joanna Goodwin and sound design by Paul Smith.
Based on Billy Wilder’s legendary 1950 film starring Gloria Swanson, Sunset Boulevard follows silent film star Nora Desmond as she dreams of a triumphant return to the silver screen, and struggling screenwriter Joe Gillis who is drawn into her sinister fantasy world.
The piece has book & lyrics by Don Black and Christopher Hampton with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Conductor Alex Parker said “Following our one-off performance at Alexandra Palace earlier this year, our concert production of Sunset Boulevard is now back bigger and better than ever, taking over the Royal Albert Hall. This timeless classic delights audiences with well-known incredible numbers including As If We Never Said Goodbye, With One Look and The Perfect Year.”
