More news on Ragnarok

2014-07-11 14.03.07 Things are really hotting up in the pre production stakes as we work towards the opening of Ragnarok on the 11th September. (You can book and find out more details the show here. You can also read my first blog on the show here). We’ve already had the first glance at Sam Wyer’s set designs which looks stunning.

You can see some of Sam’s work in the West End at the moment where he is designer of the National Theatre’s production of Elephantom which is garnering rave reviews. We’ve also heard the first rushes of Ben Hudson’s primeval music for the show. Some of Ben’s music for a forthcoming film has just been posted online, although Ragnarok’s soundtrack is going to be a lot more organic and epic sounding!

We’ve also been testing the copy for RAGNAROK with a few peers and colleagues.  Of the three choices no one can agree – but the one thing they can agree on is that they want to come!!!!!  Comments so far have included:-

‘Sounds fabulous’ said Murray Lachlan Young, ‘had me on the edge of my seat and really brought it to life, sounds very epic’ added Julia Payne. ‘I love the fantastical story telling’ said another comment, ‘really drew me in’.

If you’d like to hear some back ground about Norse Mythology this Melvyn Bragg Start the Week programme is a great place to start:-

And you can listen to an audio book of the stories here

We also officially announced our fabulous cast for RAGNAROK earlier this month.
