In June 2013 an epic musical theatre event is coming to Melbourne. Five years in the making, the eighth wonder of the world, King Kong, will be taking the stage at the Regent Theatre. With a cast of over forty singers, dancers, actors, circus performers and a team of skilled puppeteers, the showcase of one of the most romantic stories of our time is sure to be breathtaking.
King Kong himself is one of the most technologically advanced puppets in the world, a one-tonne, six-metre tall silverback gorilla. This daring performance is surely the most ambitious theatrical event of the decade. The multi-million dollar performance will inspire wonder, romance and a sense of adventure, redefining the way we experience musical theatre.
If you are lucky enough to secure a ticket to the event then you will be privileged to hear a brand new Avalanches song as well as music from Justice and Massive Attack. The musical choices have been paramount in conveying the drama of the story and the music sourced will help bring the story to life on stage. See http://kingkongliveonstage.com for more details.
