WE WILL ROCK YOU is a British musical with songs of legendary group QUEEN and libretto written by Ben Elton. The show is set in a globalized world of the future. All aspects of life on the iPlanet, which used to be called the Earth, are ruled by one powerful corporation. Musical instruments are forbidden because music is an expression of absolutely undesirable individualism. A few rebels, who secretly cultivate memory of the past, refuse to accept such a bleak existence and take up the fight for freedom, love and ROCK!
The musical premiered in London’s West End in 2002 and was played there continuously for 12 years. It has also been shown around the world – in Australia, Austria, Brazil, Belgium, France, Spain, Japan, Canada, Germany, Norway, South Africa, Switzerland, Sweden, USA, Hungary and Italy. The timeless QUEEN’s hits are known to everyone. Dynamic and humorous plot generate incredible enthusiasm of the audience. This connection creates some kind of magic – every performance ends with audience singing along with the performers. Musical then turns into a crazy rock concert remembering inimitable Freddy Mercury as its patron. WE WILL ROCK YOU is a fantastic opportunity to hear QUEEN’s songs in unfamiliar context, to discover new meanings and electrifying, thrilling and energetic sounds of such hits as “I Want To Break Free,” “Radio Ga Ga”, “I Want It All”, “We Are The Champions”, “Bohemian Rhapsody” and the title song “We Will Rock You”.
Warsaw’s ROMA Musical Theater will present WE WILL ROCK YOU in an original non-replica staging directed by Wojciech Kępczyński. Michal Wojnarowski translated libretto and the lyrics. Jakub Lubowicz is musical director of the show.
