Pacific Overtures


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Stephen Sondheim's musical is staged and directed by Michael Strassen.

An isolated Japan, swathed in honour and protected by invincible gods, has a very rude awakening in 1853 by western war ships. A lowly fisherman is sent to insist they turn back only to kick start a chain of events that lead to drastic social change.

Pulling on Japanese art forms such as Kabuki and Butoh, Pacific Overtures is an epic tale of how the child becomes the master.
