The King’s Head Theatre: La Boheme

SEEN, ever a fan of London’s thriving Fringe Theatre, is delighted to see that the King’s Head Theatre is presenting a radical new version of Puccini’s timeless classic, La Bohème, by Adam Spreadbury-Maher and Becca Marriott.

SEEN, ever a fan of London’s thriving Fringe Theatre, is delighted to see that the King’s Head Theatre is presenting a radical new version of Puccini’s timeless classic, La Bohème, by Adam Spreadbury-Maher and Becca Marriott.

It will be the second brand-new opera production staged by the theatre this year. Renowned for his inventive, contemporary reinterpretations of classic theatre and opera, Adam Spreadbury-Maher will focus upon the quintessential quartet, Mimi, Musetta, Rodolfo (Ralph) and Marcello (Mark), but will lift the opera from Puccini’s early 19th century setting, to present-day East London.

The production will lay bare the dangerous and damaging effects of co-dependent relationships against a modern and all-too-topical backdrop of spiralling rents and social media.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
