Following the success of last year’s Last Night of the Proms, held at the open air theatre in Gibraltar’s Alameda Gardens, the Calpe Rooke Band together with a magnificent cast of home grown talent are presenting Les Miserables in Concert.
Based on the 10th Anniversary Concert of the world’s most successful theatre show, the Calpe Rooke Band production will be held in the spectacular setting of St Michael’s Cave over two nights, the 11th and 12th of May 2012 with both performances starting at 8 pm.
“To our knowledge, this is the first time Les Miserables has been held in a cave.” states Chris Music, the Band Master and Director. “We have been rehearsing flat out since the auditions were held back in October 2011. The band, principals and the chorus will be working hard right up to the performances to perfect what will most definitely be a show not to be missed”. The show is expected to run for well over two hours plus a short interval for refreshments.
A short promotional video of The Making of Les Miserables in Gibraltar, viewable on YouTube, has had amazing viewings and has led to enquiries from around the world for tickets even before they have gone on sale. The Gibraltar Tourist office in London has been taking enquiries and even EasyJet have asked to promote the show in their in-flight magazine for April.
Tickets are now on general sale and priced at £15 (20€) including the cost of coach transfer from the Alameda car park, located adjacent to the lower cable car station, up and into the upper nature reserve and the entrance to St Michael’s Cave.
Tickets can be purchased from Sacarello’s Newsagents, 96 Main Street, Gibraltar or from Armstrongs Patisserie at Monte Duquesa, Manilva (up the hill from Duquesa Port).
