Commentaires : Based on the play by Christopher Bond. This Grand-Guignol semi-operatic piece is generally held to be a masterpiece and has gone on to have world-wide success. Yet this first London production failed. It was an exact copy of the Broadway version which won 8 Tony Awards and ran for 558 performances - but the London critics were scathing. They claimed the production was over-blown, swamped with heavy scenery and pretentious. (A later much simpler “chamber” version at the Cottesloe Theatre was an enormous success.)
