A PASSIONATE DANCE MUSICAL FROM THE HEART OF BRAZIL
From the creators of the Grammy Award nominated sell-out show INALA, starring Ladysmith Black Mambazo, comes the world premiere production of VOICES OF THE AMAZON, a beautifully compelling dance and music experience about love and our global reality from the heart of Brazil.
Set amidst the lush landscape of the Brazilian rainforest, VOICES OF THE AMAZON follows the story of Beleza, a water spirit from the Amazon river, whose search to cure her dying sister takes her on a life-changing journey deep into the forest. Entranced by the beauty of the natural world, her eyes are soon opened to the realities of deforestation and the devastating loss of renewable medicines and plants.
Jeremy Irons lends his voice as the narrator, amidst a sensational musical score composed in collaboration with Brazilian songwriters and world-renowned percussionists Olodum. Choreographed by Helen Pickett and performed by an exceptionally talented company of 16 dancers, singers and musicians, including The Royal Ballet’s Nathalie Harrison and Hannah Grennell, this unique production bursts with live music, song and dance on stage, fusing ballet, contemporary and capoeira.
Stefanos held a number of ensemble roles as an Original Cast Member but his signature role was The Monkey Kula with which he was featured on BroadwayWorld.com.
