Open then the door

Open then the door.
Playwright/director, Christopher Jacobs, and composer, Dr. John Sharpley have produced what they believe to be an exciting new theatrical form, through the fusion of grand opera, physical theatre, illusionism, and dance. This new work, entitled “Open Then The Door”, they define as a musico-dramatico fantasy based on The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyàm, as translated by Edward FitzGerald, presents fictional possibilities in FitzGerald’s emotional and intellectual journey in creating his translation, in which one witnesses Omar Khayyam and his world as a construct in the mind of FitzGerald as he imagines Omar may have lived and struggled to rationalise it, set against the world in which FitzGerald lived and may also have struggled to rationalise.
For this project additional collaborators are wanted … collaborators with the vision and courage to help guide and lead the work to its successful production and presentation on the international stage.
