LONDON TO HOST WORLD PREMIERE OF NEW MUSICAL MARCO POLO – AN UNTOLD LOVE STORY



By Angela Oakes – PR Director
London
August 14, 2016

 
 


The world premiere of new musical - Marco Polo, An Untold Love Story - is taking place in London this Summer at the Shaw theatre.

The new lyric musical, Marco Polo is opening on August 5th 2016 for a strictly limited one month season. The musical tells the story of what could be one of the great, untold romances of our time, between Marco Polo the 13th century Venetian explorer and the beautiful and strong-willed Princess Kogajin, daughter of the great Mongol Emperor Kublai Khan.

The words and music for the show are by Rogelio Saldo Chua, a highly accomplished Belgian singer, actor and producer, born in the Philippines. Marco Polo, An Untold Love Story includes over 20 original scores, combining moving lyrics with haunting, memorable music; not least the beautiful love song I Choose You. 

The story features Marco Polo travelling through Northern Asia, where he meets and falls in love with Kogajin, the royal Princess of Cathay. Marco aspires to become one of the ruling barons of Cathay in the realm of the great Kublai Khan in order to deserve a royal princess. Meanwhile, Marco’s pride and ambition create a personal struggle between power and true love – which will he choose?

This poignant East-West encounter of two lovers from different parts of the world is a timeless tale, rich in historical significance.  The musical is the first to tell an untold love story of the adventurer Marco Polo on the London stage. This highly original musical piece explores universal themes that appeal to all. Is there truly an invisible thread that ties those who are destined to meet and love each other?

The talented cast includes Stephanie Reese, playing the female lead Princess Kogajin. Stephanie has an international reputation as a concert singer and stage actress.  Previous starring roles include Tuptim in the West End revival of “King and I”, Kim in the German production of “Miss Saigon” and Esmeralda in Walt Disney’s world premiere of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”.
