London – A New Story

Following an idea by Bianca Ionescu-Ballo, London – A New Story’s Show, treats with humour and sometimes self-irony topical topics (subjects). In the context of the recent Brexit, captured by the mirage of the scene, the characters invite us into their Universe, using motivational  and fashionable phrases.

Three neighbours, residents with different aspirations, of a London building, are put through the postman, in a situation which they have to face it, each in its own way. Under the pretext of an invitation to casting, the lives of each of them are changing, disrupting their monotonous existence. The ambition and the nostalgia, the need to show that they are still competitive, brings everyone in a position to revoke and perform beautiful songs, with great success. In the end, the postman himself, is co-opted in this vortex, and some idylls are likely to be sprouting !

“They will again be under the spotlight ! Follow your dream ! the four seam to say ! “

Articole de presă

Privind spre experienţele trecutului istoriei muzicii, descoperim anumite raţiunii în activitatea artiştilor în scopul de a cuceri audienţa publicului. Nu întâmplător, „Londonezele” lui Haydn au fost realizate pentru a capta atenţia melomanilor din capitala Marii Britanii.
Probabil că cei care şi-au asumat conducerea noilor destine ale Teatrului Naţional de Operetă şi Musical – Bianca Ionescu-Ballo în primul rând – au proiecte asemănătoare. Dovadă concertul susţinut, ieri, la Teatrul Elisabeta şi intitulat „LONDON a new story”.
