Musical (1993)

Musique: George Stiles
Paroles: Paul Leigh
Livret: Paul Leigh
Production à la création:

Abandoned by her mother, married five times, a baronet's mistress, a plantation owner and a professional thief… Moll Flanders is a woman to watch.
This is her adventure story from rags to riches, from Colchester to the USA.

Acknowledging at the outset that “ a single woman in this society is as useful as a single shoe in a wardrobe”, Moll Flanders goes her merry way to the gallows by way of incest, betrayal, the Atlantic ocean, and, at one inadvertent moment, marriage to one of her own brothers.

Synopsis complet

The music was primarily the songs from “Beggar’s Opera” given new arrangements and new words, and with the odd gesture towards Handel and Purcell.

Based on the novel by Daniel Defoe and the play by Claire Luckham.
