Sunset Boulevard comes to the Royal Albert Hall

Sunset Boulevard is coming to the Royal Albert Hall for one night only

In a special, one-night-only concert, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Don Black and Christopher  Hampton’s iconic musical Sunset Boulevard will dazzle audiences at the Royal Albert Hall on  Friday 3rd December. Presented by The Alpha Family, in association with Quick Fantastic, the  concert reunites 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. 

Based on Billy Wilder’s legendary 1950 film starring Gloria Swanson, Sunset Boulevard is heading  to the Royal Albert Hall following a critically acclaimed performance at Alexandra Palace earlier  this year. The 19-strong cast will be accompanied by a 40-piece orchestra on the evening,  conducted by Alex Parker. Sunset Boulevard 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. 

Named after the famous Hollywood street, 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.

Conductor Alex Parker comments, 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.  

Date Friday 3rd December, 7.30pm
