Knights of the Rose @ The Arts Theatre, London

This is a classic rock musical of Shakespearean proportions. Featuring the ultimate playlist including legendary ballads and timeless anthems from Bon Jovi, Muse, Meat Loaf, Bonnie Tyler, No Doubt and many more.

In this epic tale of love, betrayal and sacrifice, the noble Knights of the Rose must defend their House and their honour. Even as the chivalrous Knights return from a glorious victory, a greater threat against the kingdom stirs. As they face the greatest battle of the Age, and betrayal threatens to tear them apart, can true love and honour triumph?

Woven from a rich tapestry of literature and high-voltage classic rock, this heroic new story charges its way into the heart of London for a limited run this summer.

The Arts Theatre was a new venue for me and I was pleasantly surprised how good it was. Very intimate being a small theatre and very friendly and helpful staff.

The production was very slick and entertaining. It’s like Shakespeare meets rock of ages with familiar tunes but in a different context. There were a few laughs when some of the songs started but my attention was held throughout. Clever but simple set and excellent acting.  There was photographer milling around during the show which was a bit of a pain but he did apologise for any inconvenience. Something a bit different so go along and enjoy.
