The one night only show coming to The Troxy in London on the 22nd of October is not to be missed by any one who can appreciate a rock show, or the theme of two lovers with a doomed relationship. Cruel by Tibor Molnar is an original opera that challenges classical musical genre characterization. It is a mixture of a rock symphonic poem with a pop/rock/sung through musical. The music encapsulates the wide range of emotions in the play, from agony to ecstasy in a futile challenge to equilibrate morality with the unstoppable craving for love.

CRUEL is a must see for anyone with a taste for dark themes and thrilling music

The story deals with the emotional exploration of an unattainable love relationship between a married man and a libertine girl dying of cancer. What impresses most is the acuteness, the depth and the versatile perspective revealed in this musical exploration. The point of the dramatical musical poem is that love is something that chooses us as opposed to the other way round, and that gaining your heart’s desire is as much a tragedy as losing it, as relationships doom us all.

The UK premiere of CRUEL is definitely suitable for those who are sick of seeing the same thing and hearing the same old story. The show will not only deliver in terms of its musical expertise in the form of four talented vocalists, but it will also leave the audience with some food for thought on the complexities of love and relationships.
