New dates announced for Plymouth performance of 'Some Call It Home'

Feb 05, 2021

The Arts Institute, in association with Theatre Royal Plymouth, has announced that its provocative multimedia music drama, Some Call It Home, will now take place on 4-5 May, 2021.

Originally scheduled to take place last year, the performance will bring 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 – part of the Mayflower 400 commemorations – explores how we have shaped human destiny across time by bringing to life pivotal events involving our relationship to our land from 1620 to the present.

The University of Plymouth’s Music Director, Dr Robert Taub, has commissioned two internationally recognised composers 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, NYC Metropolitan Opera Young Artist award-winning soprano Erika Baikoff and the highly-acclaimed English baritone Matthew Buswell will bring this scintillating musical drama to life.

 

Created, produced, and directed by Dr Robert Taub, the running time is one hour, 15 minutes and will be followed by a 45-minute post-show discussion.

The panel for that includes Dr Sana Murrani, Professor Iain Stewart and Ben Taub, foreign correspondent at The New Yorker magazine, along with artist members of the cast.

Tickets are on sale to the general public from 10am on Monday 15 February 2021.
