Oliver! - Ayrshire Philharmonic Opera Society

Where: The Gaiety, Carrick Street, Ayr KA7 1NU
When: Tuesday 05 November 2019 at View all dates

Bringing Charles Dicken's novel to life, The Ayrshire Philharmonic Opera Society will take you on a wild adventure through Victorian England's underworld of theft and violence as Oliver Twist searches for a home and a family, but most importantly love.

The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, escapes to London and is picked up on the streets by The Artful Dodger. He is welcomed into a gang of pickpockets led by the conniving but charismatic Fagin. After being falsely accused of theft, Oliver is rescued by a kind and wealthy gentleman. Fearing for the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the villainous Bill Sykes and his girlfriend Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver's chances of discovering the true love of a family.

Caught in the middle is the warm-hearted Nancy who is trapped under Bill's thumb, but desperate to help Oliver, with tragic results. Spirited timeless songs such as "As Long As He Needs Me", "Food Glorious Food" and "Where Is Love" makes Oliver! a musical classic.

Lionel Bart's Oliver! remains one of the most loved British musicals, combining Dickens' classic story and characters, with a sensational and unforgettable score. Classic songs include Food Glorious Food, Consider Yourself, You've Got to Pick-a-Pocket or Two, I'd do Anything, Oom Pah Pah, As Long as He Needs Me, and many more. Book, Music and Lyrics by Lionel Bart. Presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe).

Time(s): 7:30pm (2:00pm on 09/11/19)
