(Prog) Clive Nolan has released a preview clip from his upcoming prog musical live DVD, Alchemy. The Pendragon and Arena man's extravaganza is set in 1842 and features a host of Victorian characters wrapped in a series of ambitious compositions.
He's gearing up for four performances this week at the Playhouse Theatre in Cheltenham. Three will feature the principal cast, which includes Nolan himself, Agnieszka Swita, David Clifford, Victoria Bollet and more, alongside singers Tracy Hitchings (Landmarq, Strangers On A Train), Andy Sears (Twelfth Night), Paul Manzi (Arena, Oliver Wakeman Band) and Damian Wilson (Threshold, Headspace). Saturday's matinee show will be delivered by understudies.
The creator says: "Alchemy on stage – I'm looking forward to it with a large mixture of emotions." The DVD was recorded in Katowice, Poland, in February. Check out the preview here.
