“We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.”
J. Robert Oppenheimer
The Arts Institute presents Some Call It Home. Join us at the Theatre Royal Plymouth for this provocative multi-media music drama that brings to the stage conflicting perspectives of our uneasy relationship with the land – our home, our planet.
With live music and international star soloists, this hard-hitting work of art – as part of the Mayflower 400 commemorations – explores how we have carved destinies by pitching dominion of our land against stewardship, from 1620 to the present.
The University’s Music Director, Robert Taub, has commissioned two internationally recognised composers commissioned to write the musical score, Jonathan Dawe (NYC), and Jane O’Leary a direct descendant of Mayflower passenger Richard Warren. An ensemble comprised of musicians from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Grammy-nominated baritone Randall Scarlata, and English soprano Deborah York will bring this scintillating musical drama to life.
Running time: 1hr 15mins, followed by a 45-minute post-show discussion
Date: Tuesday 24 and Wednesday 25 March 2020
Venue: Theatre Royal Plymouth
