We Will Rock You, a rock opera containing 24 of Queen’s biggest hits, made its official debut in Singapore on January 5, 2023, at the Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay. Nick Winston, a nominee for an Olivier Award in direction and choreography, is currently in charge of the reimagined production of the legendary Ben Elton and Queen collaboration, which was seen by 20 million worldwide.
After Singapore, this production goes on an extended international tour that lasts several years, giving this exciting new interpretation to audiences everywhere.
We Will Rock You will be performed in New Zealand in June 2023, following the season in Singapore, by GMG Productions, a Manila-based company.
“GMG Productions is incredibly excited to have our production of We Will Rock You debut in Singapore. While over 20 million people have seen the original production worldwide, we know the Singapore audience loves Queen and Queen’s music, and we can’t wait to thrill them with our brand-new set and costume design. Our director has also brought a modern vibe to the musical, and we promise that the 2023 update is one musical-rock concert that everybody will enjoy,” said GMG Productions CEO and We Will Rock You producer Carlos Candal.
In the post-apocalyptic universe of We Will Rock You, two rebels fight to preserve rock ‘n’ roll music. We Will Rock You is a musical for our day because it depicts a period when algorithms could predict every human desire. It is a fast-paced, fist-pumping, foot-stomping tribute to uniqueness.
With 24 of Queen’s biggest hits, including Killer Queen, Under Pressure, We Are the Champions, Radio Ga Ga, I Want to Break Free, Don’t Stop Me Now Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites the Dust. Of course, the iconic We Will Rock You, this brand-new international rock-powered production, is a global rock phenomenon.
“I’m so grateful to the Producers for supporting my vision for We Will Rock You. Science fiction isn’t a genre you get to explore often in musical theatre, and I have had so much fun bringing this dystopian world to life with my extraordinary cast and creative team. I hope the Singapore audience enjoys what we’ve worked on to bring them!” Nick Winston, director and choreographer, said.
