One Night Only
One Night Only: STARLIGHT EXPRESS in English for the first time
After almost 29 years, the successful musical is trying out an experiment and, at the same time, fulfilling a dream of many international fans: in an unusual special show on 28 March 2017, the German STARLIGHT EXPRESS company will be presenting the Bochum version of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s worldwide musical hit in the English language for the first time.
To create this unique experience, it was necessary not just to completely retranslate some scenes that don’t appear in the original English version, but also to make a new recording of an English child’s voice perfectly adapted to the Bochum show which will be played as the narrative “Control Voice”. This meant plenty of work for the creative team.
