Katherine Jenkins and Alfie Boe

Opera stars Alfie Boe and Katherine Jenkins will lead the cast of this classic musical

The ENO has been dipping a toe into the technicolour world of musical theatre of late, with semi-staged productions that mix celeb casting, opera stars, and the formidable talents of their 40-strong orchestra and chorus. After 2015's 'Sweeney Todd' (starring Bryn Terfel and Emma Thompson) and 2016's 'Sunset Boulevard' (starring Glenn Close), their latest target is Rodgers and Hammerstein’s swooningly romantic 'Carousel'.

Seasoned Broadway director Lonny Price will be at the helm once more. Operatic tenor Alfie Boe will take the role of Billy Bigelow, a carousel barker who catches the eye of millworker Julie Jordan, who'll be played by Welsh mezzo soprano Katherine Jenkins. With two hit recording artists, this production should present 'Carousel's songbook at its ravishing best - as well as offering a chance to check out this famous pair's acting chops. Nicholas Lyndhurst, of all people, will co-star as Star Keeper.
