The English National Opera has launched their spring production of Sunset Boulevard with a press conference held at the London Coliseum.
Glenn Close, who is set to reprise her role of Norma Desmond was joined by the musical’s lyricists Christopher Hampton and Don Black.
The three spoke about their history with the show before stepping onto the stage. The ENO production of Sunset Boulevard will mark Glenn’s West End debut as well as her first reprisal of the role for UK audiences. The full ENO orchestra will appear on stage alongside the cast in the semi-staged production which opens in April 2016.
Glenn previously won a Tony Award, a Drama Desk Award, a Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award and a Dramalogue Award for her role in the Broadway production, which was composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber and directed by Trevor Nunn.
