Event Description

If clothes make the man, they can undo him. A spectacular new musical treatment of Gogol’s beloved story. 

20 years after it took the world by storm, Morris Panych and Wendy Gorling’s landmark movement theatre adaptation of Nikolai Gogol’s The Overcoat is re-born as a world premiere musical experience. Renowned playwright/director Panych joins forces with award-winning composer James Rolfe to bring a bold operatic voice to the beloved tale of a lowly office worker whose life is turned upside down when he is robbed of his new overcoat. Sparkling with spectacular choreography and darkly-funny storytelling, this genre-bending Overcoat is one of “the must-sees of the opera season” (The WholeNote).
