Bel-Ami musical premieres at Charing Cross Theatre

Guy de Maupassant novel adapted for the stage.

Bel-Ami

New musical Bel-Ami will premiere at Charing Cross Theatre on 19 February 2014, directed by Chris Loveless. The production is a fresh take on the classic Guy de Maupassant novel by award-winning composer Alex Loveless. Presented by the London College of Music (LCM) it will run from 19th February – 1st March 2014.

A present-day satire on celebrity, press corruption and politics, the show is set against the fictional backdrop of a US-led invasion of Iran. Its contemporary score includes rap, dance, rock and RnB.

Disillusioned former soldier George Dury joins the ranks of his friend’s newspaper, quickly becoming the editor of the celebrity gossip column ‘Bel-Ami’. Manipulating his way into the highest echelons of British society by charming, seducing and blackmailing those who cross his path, he is rewarded with ever-increasing wealth and prestige. But his ultimate goal will always be power.

Bel-Ami is the first University production ever to be staged in the West End. Part of the University of West London, LCM has a long-standing tradition of developing new musicals.

Tickets are available from the Charing Cross Theatre website.
