Clive Nolan (Pendragon, Arena, Strangers on A Train) returns in late September with a DVD featuring a live version of his most ambitious solo project to date – the rock musical “Alchemy”. Brought to life by a host of artists well known on the prog-rock scene, “Alchemy” is a Victorian adventure set in 1842, with a sense of the dark and mysterious. The musical sees the return of many actors known from the Caamora Theatre Company’s previous productions of “She” – Clive Nolan, Agnieszka Swita, David Clifford, Victoria Bolley, Chris Lewis and Soheila Clifford – aided by such remarkable singers as Tracy Hitchings (Strangers on a Train, Landmarq), Andy Sears (Twelfth Night), Paul Manzi (Arena, Oliver Wakeman Band), and Damian Wilson (Threshold, Headspace). With an excellent line-up of musicians, including Mark Westwood (guitars), Scott Higham (drums), Claudio Momberg (piano), Kylan Amos (bass), and of course Clive Nolan himself, the show guarantees to provide an outstanding musical experience for all fans of well-written and perfectly performed ambitious prog music.
The DVD recorded in February in Wyspianski Theater (Katowice, Poland), is enriched by a number of additional features, such as interviews with Clive Nolan, Agnieszka Swita, David Clifford, Scott Higham, and Mark Westwood, as also “The Making of Alchemy” material.
