Dr Dee - An English Opera
After the phenomenal success of Damon Albarn first opera, Monkey: Journey to the West, Albarn returns to the Opera with Dr Dee – An English Opera.
Playing at The London Coliseum in June and July, Dr Dee is an opera by Damon Albarn and Rufus Norris and tells the story of Doctor John Dee, the Elisabethan astrologer, mathematician, occultist, alchemist - and spy.
Dr Dee has captivated audiences when it premiered this summer at the International Festival in Manchester and is set to repeat the success when the production arrives in London.
Starring the Blur frontman Damon Albarn with a stellar cast of musicians and acors, Dr Dee has been lauded as a quintessential, English opera. The music was scored for musicians performing on Elizabethen English instruments, such as the dulcian, lute, viola de gamba, shawn, recorder and lute and the African kora.
