‘The clock runs the East End...n’ I run the clock’
Drawing on musical theatre, music hall and the Asian classical music; Clocks 1888 takes place against a visually stunning digitally animated backdrop.
At the heart of the story is 'the Greener'’, a brilliantly clever young migrant girl who single-handedly runs the towering clock that controls the East End. When she is discovered by a gentleman explorer, they are forced to choose between the worlds they know and each other.
The critically acclaimed cast reflect the diversity of the nineteenth century East London setting and includes Patricia Rozario OBE (English National Opera) and Keisha Atwell (Memphis The Musical). The opera’s themes of immigration and cultural heritage are as relevant today as they were back in 1888.
Brolly’s epic new steampunk opera tells a powerful story of love and survival that takes you on an extraordinary journey into the animated world of the clock.
